zaha hadid continues her collaboration with citco in the form of ‘mercuric’ to be presented 2013 salonedelmobile. while last year the architect designed the ‘secret garden pavilion’ for the marble company, this year’s collaboration elevates the material through an object– tables.perceptions of marble as a baroque, old-world material are reframed by undulating, milled forms in part due to the ability of machinery to mimic precise sculptural craft. the tables are a total vision for an object and the configurable relationships between them. the three alternately white or black  pieces can be composed as the user sees fit.
