Led creatively by co-directors Maha Kutay and Woody Yao, Zaha Hadid Design’s portfolio encompasses 40 years of research expressed in pioneering designs for lighting, furniture, and finishes. Year after year, at Maison Et Objet 2020 the studio makes sure to display the most amazing and innovative pieces.
A recent addition to the Pulse glass collection, the new Pulse platter conveys an exaggerated articulation of its pleated glass – a signature of the Pulse family of objects – highlighting the asymmetry of its design. Comprised of two elements, the new Plex vessel in the crystal can be stacked vertically to conceal its contents or separated into parts that nest together.
The limited-edition Serenity centerpiece in transparent polished acrylic draws inspiration from Hadid’s innovative formal language of fluidity, its pristine surface interrupted by ripples that refract and reflect light. Also new for 2020, the black Obsidian scented candle, an addition to the Shimmer collection, is composed with scents of smoky cade, cedar leaf, black pepper, and cumin seed.
The Shimmer candles are a composition of faceted, flame-polished glass that transitions from a rounded base to a hexagonal peak. Inspired by Zaha Hadid’s research into architectural towers, the candles can be reused as a sculptural container.
The collection has been extended with new colors for 2020 that include the Serenity platter now available in rose gold, the Cell candleholder in silver and the Duo salt & pepper grinders in olive green.
