With same the complex, organic, and sinuous forms that defined her iconic architecture of the late 20th and early 21st century, Zaha Hadid’s eponymous design studio brings to the world radical accessories, limited edition sculptural masterworks, jewelry, furnishings, fashion accessories, lighting, exhibitions, and set design that pushes the boundaries of what good design can be, meticulously refined, uncompromising, and exuberant. Founded in 2006 by Zaha Hadid, Zaha Hadid Design imbues contemporary design with a dynamic sense of motion and precise rigor, a meditation on Hadid’s aesthetic philosophy that crowned her “Queen of the Curve” with the same rounded edges and soft angles that helped shape the landscape of contemporary architecture with structures that echoed nature and at times seemed to defy the laws of gravity.
Recognized as one of the most notable architects of her time, Zaha Hadid was born in Baghdad, Iraq and studied architecture in London where she worked for her almost 40 year-long career, producing iconic structures like the Vitra Fire Station, Contemporary Arts Center in Cincinnati, Guangzhou Opera House in China, Zaragoza Bridge Pavilion, and the Heydar Aliyev Center in Baku, Azerbaijan, among many other works that won awards and captivated audiences with arresting forms and state-of-the-art technologies. Influenced by Suprematism and the Russian avant-garde, Hadid’s unique and exceptional contribution to architecture has been acknowledged with many accolades and awards from some of the most highly respected institutions, including the Forbes List of the ”World’s Most Powerful Women” and the “Premium Imperiale” from the Japan Art Association. In 2004, she was the first woman to receive the Pritzker Architecture Prize and in 2010 and 2011, her designs were awarded the Stirling Prize, one of architecture’s highest honors, from the Royal Institute of British Architects. In 2016, she was the first woman to be individually awarded the Royal Gold Medal.
Although she passed away in March of 2016, Zaha Hadid’s legacy lives on through Zaha Hadid Design where Co-Directors Maha Kutay and Woody Yao continue to invoke the founder’s ethos through works that coherently translate her aesthetic and methodological approach to design, using abstraction as an investigative principle and liberating geometries with expressive allure and flawless precision. From works inspired by the replication and growth of cellular organisms to pieces that bring to the tabletop the highly complex futuristic forms seen in her architecture, Zaha Hadid Design products offer a collection of sculpturally robust objects that extend the creative possibilities of materials used with the latest technological advancements, unveiling new ways of experiencing contemporary design with scale, materiality, and weight, spectacularly energetic, sensuously dramatic, and always timeless, elegant, and refined.
