As a celebrated architect and designer, Zaha Hadid explored spatial concepts at all scales and sought to push the boundaries of contemporary design. Born in Baghdad in 1950, she studied Mathematics before enrolling at London’s Architectural Association in 1972. After establishing Zaha Hadid Architects in 1979, Hadid gained global prominence for her complex, futuristic structures. With strong references to futurism and cubism, her innovative and aesthetically-driven work remained defiantly original throughout her career until her passing in 2016.
Hadid established Zaha Hadid Design in 2006, with a vision to create unique, experimental and scultuptural design objects. Led by co directors Woody Yao and Maha Kutay, Zaha Hadid Design continues to draw strength from her approach by embracing technological and material advances to allow collections to evolve without compromising the integrity of the design.
The timeless ‘Pulse’ collection by ZHD is unified through a sense of movement, featuring a rippling effect on the surface to mimic water. The result is an elegant pattern of vertical waves around part of its circumference, highlighting the asymmetry of the design within a perfectly symmetrical form. Ranging in scale and colour, the ‘Pulse’ collection of hand-blown glassware will make a statement in any contemporary interior.
