Zaha Hadid Launches High-End Homeware Collection at Harrods
Though mostly famous as an architect (with quite an impressive portfolio), Zaha Hadid also uses her great skill and creativity to design pieces of furniture, fashion items, jewelry, and other objects which are smaller in scale, but still as beautiful as her usual creations. This time the result of her work is a stunning homeware collection comprising vessels, candelabras, vases, and a chess set.
The materials used to create the items from are bone china, resin, acrylic, while the colors employed are white and black, with hints of green and pink. The futuristic-looking pieces, which display the signature curves Hadid’s buildings usually feature, have the unmistakable feel of the buildings she has designed throughout the world.
One example of this is the Aqua Platter, inspired by the London 2012 Olympic Aquatic Centre, which comes with a price tag of $16,400 (£9,999). Another eye-catching item is the minimalistic Field of Towers Chess Set, priced at $8,000 (£4,860). The collection also brings together elegant candlesticks, a double-headed candelabra, and a series of scented candles housed within vessels based on the architect’s skyscraper designs – all of which you can check out in the gallery below.
Zaha Hadid’s homeware collection was launched during this year’s London Design Festival, at the high-end department store Harrods.
