Vibrant chandeliers and coffee tables shine with ZHD hallmarks

May 2018

Zaha Hadid Design’s (ZHD) collaboration with leading designers has led to new furniture collections and accessories.

Slamp and ZHD have created the Avia Edition, a vibrant new collection of the chandelier series handcrafted in three different shades – turquoise, blue and ultramarine. The limited-edition series has only 99 chandeliers in each of the three colours.

“The Avia chandeliers embody the originality of Hadid’s architecture, integrating design complexity with innovative manufacturing techniques,” says a spokesman.

Each piece comprises 50 intricately layered Cristalflex elements specifically composed to refract light from the LED source and create a dynamic play of light that is further enhanced by the use of Lentiflex.

With Citco, ZHD has launched two new pieces: Volta Bench and Malea coffee table. Volta is carved from a single block of granite and combines ZHD’s seamless lines with Citco’s exquisite craftsmanship. The intertwined loop is articulated through a smooth transition between hard-edged surfaces and soft, fluid, lines describing the item’s function while ensuring stability to the overall design. The Malea coffee table, meanwhile, combines two interlocking elements carved from a block of onyx. The transparent acrylic material amplifies depth and complexity through a flawless display of refractions while the solid stone conveys stability and balance to the overall design.
