The Legend, That Is Zaha Hadid Continues

Imbibing Zaha Hadid’s methods in each new project, Zaha Hadid Design (ZHD) continues to share Hadid’s story.

Pulse Glass Collection

By inspecting its role within the dialogue of contemporary design, by interpreting both the present and the future, Zaha Hadid Design keeps alive the legend.

ZHD, which is helmed creatively by co-Directors Maha Kutay and Woody Yao, has an extensive cross-disciplinary portfolio that includes fashion, jewellery, furniture and finishes, interiors, exhibitions, installations, sculpture and set-design.

Duo Salt & Pepper Grinders

ZHD has come up with a collection whose strength lies in its ability to interpret the ordinary and turn it into something unexpected. When designing objects Zaha was never constrained by any given use or spatial context. Continuing to follow and draw strength from this approach, the collection has room to evolve without compromising the integrity of the design.

Plex Vessels

The Plex Vessel in crystal glass has been envisaged as a multi-use object. The elegant wave-like gesture belies the complexity of its design which consists of two re-configurable elements. This light-hearted object can be stacked vertically, hiding its contents within or separated into parts that nest together to create a defined landscape across any surface.

Shimmer Scented Candles

The Pulse Platter in glass has a slight depth that allows for an exaggerated articulation of the pleated glass, a distinct character found in the design language of the Pulse family of objects. These vertical waves intentionally highlight the asymmetry of the design along the circumference.

Serenity Platters

The Shimmer Scented Candle made of lead-free crystal has a faceted, flame-polished structure that transitions upwards from a rounded base to a hexagonal peak. Inspired by Zaha Hadid’s research into tower forms, the object can also be used as a sculptural container. The scents come in Smokey Cade, Cedar Leaf, Black Pepper and Cumin Seed.

Cell Candleholders

Woody Yao, joined Zaha Hadid Architects in 1994. As well as working on projects, Woody has been instrumental in the development of the Archive and the growth of the Exhibitions program as he currently curates several shows a year and leads his team in design and execution.

Maha Kutay joined Zaha Hadid Architects in 1995 and has been involved in a number of key architectural projects such as the ‘ROCA London Gallery’ and the ‘Serpentine Sackler Gallery’. Having assisted with the design of Zaha Hadid’s first limited edition product collaboration, she began to develop and manage the product design department. Collaborating with global luxury brands and galleries, Maha leads her team in the implementation of every project.

When speaking about the ZHD Collection – the own label of design objects launched by Hadid in 2014, Yao and Kutay explain, “ZHD also operates the Zaha Hadid Gallery in London, UK which examines her work across all scales and which is host to temporary exhibitions featuring emerging designers, as well as a venue for product launches, lectures, and performances rooted in contemporary culture.”
