Zaha's First Storefront is Full of Amorphous, Colorless Stuff

Zaha Hadid, the architect famed the world over for her nebulous, larger-than-life buildings and sleek, edgeless furnishings, has opened her first-ever permanent gallery and showroom, stocking the central London gallery full of designs one has come to expect from the color-eschewing curve obsessive. Inside: ribbed black furniture that reads like an oil slick (above), sculptural chandeliers that sag toward the ground, sculpted jewelry, an entire floor of white-and-silver architectural models, and at least two pairs of shoes that, unsurprisingly perhaps, look a lot like One Thousand Museum, a Hadid-designed condo building in Miami.
