The Extraordinary Process at Maison Mais Non

16 September – 16 November 2016

Gallery Maison Mais Non presents its inaugural exhibition, The Extraordinary Process from 16 September to 16 November 2016. The Extraordinary Process highlights Zaha Hadid Design’s position as a collaborative workshop, exposing the creative process of a variety of makers including Peter Do, Phoebe English, Iris van Herpen, Stephen Jones, Krystyna Kozhoma, Nasir Mazhar, Minimaforms, Patrik Schumacher and XO.

Evolving from discussions between Maison Mais Non, Zaha Hadid and Patrik Schumacher last year, fashion designers and architects will examine innovative technologies of the present to imagine how these will evolve and shape the world of the future.

“In terms of form, all our projects – architecture, fashion and furniture – interest me equally; and all of the designs originate form similar principles. All the projects are connected somehow.” – Zaha Hadid

The Design Research Lab at the Architectural Association, founded by Patrik Schumacher and currently under the direction of Theodore Spyropoulos, will engage designers to push far beyond the current constraints of science and technology today to imagine the world of tomorrow. The conversations around these future worlds will be illustrated with models produced by the DRI, alongside garments, toiles, swatches, sketches, videos and correspondence that detail the collaborative process. The synthesis of these discussions will be suggested through beautifully rendered installations by each designer.

Curated by Lou Stoppard, with exhibition design by William Pelham, The Extraordinary Process will consider the potential of fashion and architecture to enhance the human condition, and the ways these industries may conceptually redefine themselves in the future.

The Extraordinary Process was organised under the direction of Zaha Hadid Design and with thanks to advice from Hans Ulrich Obrist.
