Zaha Hadid's 'Mew' Table, an Artful Oil Slick, Was One of Her Last Designs

The project was completed just days before she passed away on March 31

Though primarily known for her otherworldly buildings, Pritzker-winning architect Zaha Hadid, who suddenly passed away on March 31 at age 65, also completed a slew of similarly imaginative design objects during her career. There was the rippling water dining table, futuristic Fabergé egg, not to mention vases, a doll house, perfume bottle, and shoe. And completed just a few days before Hadid passed away was the "Mew" table, an ultra fluid piece the decorated Dame created for Italian furniture brand Sawaya + Moroni.

Just unveiled at Milan Design Week 2016, the "Mew" table comes after two other pieces Hadid designed for Sawaya + Moroni, which specializes in collaborations with architects like Hadid, David Adjaye, Daniel Libeskind, Jean Nouvel, and more. Featuring two surfaces that meld into one along a curve, the table offers the same kind of radical, swoopy aesthetic we've come to expect from the late architect. The design will be produced in three colors—red, white, and black.
