showcased at the fall edition of maison & objet 2016, zaha hadid’s collection 2016 utilizes contrast as a key element, exploring both the use of color and materiality. the use of traditional bone china and ceramic are juxtaposed against modern resins and acrylics; this highlights the fluid forms and hadid’s signature design aesthetic.

‘the prime’ scented candles integrates the solid structural form of a crafted fine ceramic multi-purpose container with delicately blended and fragranced premium soy and paraffin candle wax. at first appearing as an opaque satin surface, the underlying translucency of prime’s fine ceramic structure becomes increasingly visible as the wax melts away, revealing the interdependence between prime’s skeletal structure and its smooth flowing skin.

zaha’s fascination with supremastism is seen in ‘the bone’ table ware. the russian abstract art movement developed by kazimir malevich in 1913 resulted in the creation of this limited edition bone china range. it characteristically utilises characterised by simple geometrical shapes such as circles, squares, lines and rectangles. the design is accented with gold leaf details.
