The esteemed works of the late Zaha Hadid and her practice traverse into all forms of conceptualized design. You name it, Zaha Hadid has probably made some sort of contribution. However, in exploring various forms of design from city plans, to furniture pieces, product design, and even jewelry, Dame Hadid’s lust for creation has only deemed her and her team in spearheading the trajectory of design and architecture. Having established her product design practice in 2006, an extensive collection of projects have come through the doors of Zaha Hadid Designs.

“My product designs and architecture have always been connected. Some of our earliest projects were designs for products and interiors. These design pieces are very important to me and my team. They inspire our creativity by providing an opportunity to express our ideas through different scales and through different media; an essential part of our on-going design investigation.”
