zaha hadid has unveiled the latest evolution of her ‘liquid glacial tables’ on the occasion of her exhibition at london’s david gill galleries (which runs until november 16th, 2013). the furniture piece entitled ‘prototype liquid glacial table’ has a flat top that appears as if it is a surface of subtle ripples and waves, which funnels downwards into four vortexes to create the table legs. the first iterations of the ‘liquid glacial collection’ was shortlisted by the design museum in the furniture category as one of the ‘best designs of 2012’ which designboom covered here. the newest version is an acrylic and plexiglass design milled and hand polished–like its predecessors–resulting in a pristine, glassy finish.

 

I have always been interested in the concept of fluidity,’ says zaha hadid. ‘using all the advances in design, material and manufacturing technologies, we are now able to achieve even greater results in the work.’

 

the ‘prototype liquid glacial table’ is being shown alongside zaha hadid’s 128m ‘master prototype superyacht’ designed for blohm + voss.
