A Farewell to Zaha Hadid with Ultrastellar Collection

Even afterlife, Zaha Hadid is still breaking barriers in the world of design with the assistance of her architects and partner, Patrik Schumacher. However, Ultrastellar will be the last cluster of pieces created by the visionary designer, a mid-century based furniture collection that was made exclusively for David Gill Gallery, a very close friend of Hadid. It may be a farewell, but Zaha’s spirit will always shine through her organic, ambiguous, and timeless designs.

The pieces within the collection were made of walnut and leather. The partners were heavily influenced by materials used in the 50s and 60s while creating this sensational artwork.  Asserted by multiple techniques and textures, the designs feature Hadid’s well-known fluidity in forms and lines.

According to Schumacher, “The idea of making the holes in the tables is to make a certain sense of lightness, to have more visual connection with the structure of the legs when you sit down”. This walnut table is composed of four parts, and each one has a undulated and wide ripple.

Hadid was able to create robust pieces that almost seem weightless. This phenomenally timber made table presents a round shape and a glass-eye at its centre. The dining room table is the largest piece of Ultrastellar and it is quite the irregular and ambitious design.
