London was abuzz last week, as design enthusiasts milled about for the London Design Festival. The event saw a number of installations, pop-ups and launches relating to design in various forms, from cars to food. Amongst the lot, renowned architect Zaha Hadid also made headlines for a brand new project.
Known for her imposing architectural feats, the Iraqi-born architect has turned her hand to designing on a smaller scale with her first ever homeware collection. The collection was launched as an exclusive to luxury department store Harrods during the Design Festival.
Featuring her trademark futuristic sculptural lines, the collection includes a table mat, scented candles and even a “Field of Towers” chess set. The starting price stands at £38 for her vessels (white bone china cups), whilst £9,999 will fetch you the Aqua platter. Primarily in black or white, the focus is places on the fluid lines that compose each item. The pieces reference some of her architectural work, with the Aqua Platter taking direct inspiration from the London Aquatics Centre, which Hadid designed for the London Olympic Games.
This marks yet another project that Hadid can add to her, already rich, portfolio. Available in Harrods, the homeware collection can also be purchased from the Zaha Hadid Design website.
