Zaha Hadid Design’s homeware collection at Maison & Objet ParisTuesday 6 September 2016
Zaha Hadid Design’s works and designs continue to emerge even after her death. The latest artworks are unveiled at Maison & Objet’s fall exhibition in Paris. It is a homeware collection featuring candles, tableware, vases, coasters, and more.
Simply titled “Collection 2016,” the series showcases materiality, color, parametric design, technique, and craftsmanship—signature elements that figure in all of Hadid’s work, whether architecture or small objects. Hadid began developing Collection 2016 earlier this year, before her unexpected death from a heart attack. Through each piece, she had hoped to convey the forms present in her architecture.
Two sets of fine bone china dinnerware reflect the designer’s love of the graphic, with the Beam set featuring geometric shapes inspired by the Russian abstract art movement, and the Illusion set portraying a vortex-like arrangement of fine black lines set against white.
Other pieces include acrylic place mats, braided vases, small white cups with colorful insides, and diffusers.
The Prime scented candles integrate the sculptural ceramic holder with the candle which is made from premium soy and paraffin wax so that they appear as one. As the wax melts, the holder’s translucency appears, highlighting its skeletal structure. It is available in a range of sizes in white and black.
While some of the designs prominently feature Hadid’s signature fluid forms, others – like a set of coasters and placemats – play on visual trickery and optical illusions.
