Contrast is key – following this maxim, Zaha Hadid Design has created a collection of exceptional design objects for the home. Three collections of vases have been designed for Rosenthal, the leading brand of ceramic objects for the home, which in its 140-year-long history has collaborated with artists and designers such as Salvador Dali, Andy Warhol, Walter Gropius, and Werner Panton.These decor items come to life in platinum, matte black, matte white, glazed white and white/gold, which are in total harmony with the Iraqi-British architect’s own design principles: free form, naturally fluid design and extravagant style.
The Lapp Vase Collection:The Lapp vase collection is characterised by tear-drop-shaped openings and an elaborate
combination of matte and shiny surfaces. Flower arrangements can be both classic and highly playful, with flowers leaning out to the side.
The Weave Collection:
Defined by the fluid lines of Zaha Hadid’s sketching hand, the Weave vases incorporate delicate strokes that interweave and diverge to express their interplay of fluidity and symmetry.
The Strip Collection:
The Strip collection has a sculptural feel to it. A dynamic vase body emerges from a rigid square that functions as a base, reaching skyward like a tall building before coming to rest in a perfect round opening.
More about Zaha Hadid:
Iraqi designer Zaha Hadid (1950 – 2016) was one of the world’s most famous architects, whose bold designs were long considered impossible to build. In 2004, she became the first woman to receive the Pritzker Architecture Prize. After first obtaining a mathematics degree followed by a diploma from the Architectural Association School in London, Hadid founded architecture firm Zaha Hadid Architects in 1979. Projects with fashion icons such as Chanel and Louis Vuitton, and brands including adidas, Alessi, Artemide and B&B Italia underlined her huge creative potential and her desire to constantly break new ground. Some of her most important architectural works include the fire station on the Vitra Campus, Weil am Rhein, which also enabled her breakthrough, the Guangzhou Opera House and the library on the campus of the Vienna University of Economics and Business in 2013.
