Zaha Hadid Collabs on a Pair of Radical Wooden Vases

New, 1 comment

Zaha Hadid, the starchitect who has previously extended her brand to, among other things, Fabergé eggs, slinky shoes, and dollhouses, has now collaborated with British furniture designer Gareth Neal on a pair of wooden pairs more dramatic than all the rest. Hadid has actually designed ultra-curvy crystal vases before, but these new pieces focus on bringing dramatically foreign forms to a material as traditional as oak.

The vases, sculpted from oak, subverts the normal vessel shape, looking like they've been stretched in slow motion. Created as a part of "The Wish List," a collaborative design initiative from the American Hardwood Export Council and Benchmark Furniture, this pair of otherworldly tableware will soon go on show at various exhibitions, including Art/Basel Miami in June.
