The design studio of the late architect Zaha Hadid continues its mission despite the death of its founder in March 2016. Known for her impressive buildings with breathtaking curves, the work of late Zaha Hadid is continued by her design and architecture studio, which will be showing off several new creations at the forthcoming Maison & Objet interior design and decoration trade show in Paris.

Tableware is on the menu at this edition, with bowls, plates and other classic pieces with eye-catching designs. Indeed, this year, visitors to the studio’s stand will discover a selection of creations that almost look to have been beamed down from the future. One such piece is a magnificent crystal bowl dubbed “Swirl,” which captures the sweeping gesture of a liquefied vortex with its complex geometry and topographical shifts. Breakfast will never be the same again!
This large bowl is joined by new platters in the “Cell” collection. Crafted from black and white marble, their curved shapes allow them to sit together in different ways. A plate, a dish and a stainless steel centerpiece will also be presented.
The “Hew” range – previously comprising glassware – will be completed by a tray evoking “a series of subtle movements.”
Zaha Hadid was born in 1950 in Baghdad. She founded her own studio at the age of 29 after having worked with the architect, Rem Koolhaas.
Since her death in March 2016, the studio has continued her work. Recently, Zaha Hadid Architects inaugurated the Morpheus, an impressive 40-story luxury hotel in Macau.
Zaha Hadid was the first woman to win the prestigious Pritzker Architecture Prize.
These new pieces will be on show at Paris’s Maison & Objet until Jan 22.
