Zaha Hadid has been one of the most well known names to people in our field, i.e. design and architecture. However the way her work has been spreading in the past 20 years has allowed her to be household name rather than just a name circulated among designers. Not only is she a successful architect, but one with such a unique style that indicates her touch once you see a building or product designed by her and her team. Her architectural iconic buildings have swept over every design magazine and website. What I liked to highlight in this post , however, were the products she designed.
The products below are among my favorites , and incredibly synonymous with the style she has created for herself. When you look through them you will notice her signature in every product. The latest product she designed was the beautiful Seoul Tea service.
The Seoul Tea Service
Inspired by the ancient traditions of Korean culture and lifestyle, the tea service designed by Zaha Hadid Architects has re-interpreted the ceremonial aspects inherent to Korea’s way of life throughout history into a fluid, seamless vision of the future both through material and form utilizing digital design and fabrication processes to realize their transformation.
The Seoul Tea Service is the latest product design by Zaha Hadid Architects, which was commissioned by NY Projects in 2009. The service is made out of ceramic while the textured case that resembles a spaceship is carbon fiber. The fluid and dynamic form of the set is based on the exploration of movement through space.
