Beyond Buildings: Zaha Hadid's Experimental Marble Furniture
Zaha Hadid, the Iraqi-British architect, now synonymous with curvaceous forms was relatively unknown at the turn of the millennium but her London-based design practice has now completed over 950 projects in 44 countries. As well as exploring the latest technological innovations in response to commercial briefs she also experiments with architectural projects at a small scale, creating limited edition pieces of furniture, sculpture and jewellery.
In a collaboration she started with the Italian brand Citco in 2012, Hadid has created an extraordinary collection that explores the possibilities of shaping marble, drawing on the beauty of its’ stratified and complex structure. A wall fireplace, a shelving system and two table designs: each unique piece is derived from a singular block of white or black marble, excavated, worked, carved and crafted with faultless attention to detail. What does 2015 hold for the way these two connoisseurs think about the polished world?
