Zaha Hadid Design’s vases for Rosenthal presented during London Design Festival

From 17 September during London Design Festival, Zaha Hadid Gallery will showcase the development process of the Zaha Hadid Design’s vase collections for Rosenthal.

Founded in 1879, Rosenthal is one of the world’s leading producers of porcelain tableware and items for the home. Creating timeless collections throughout its 140-year history, Rosenthal has also collaborated on acclaimed edition pieces with leading artists and designers including Salvador Dali, Andy Warhol, Walter Gropius and Werner Panton.

Zaha Hadid Design’s new collections for Rosenthal reinterpret the relationships inherent throughout the studio’s architecture.

The ‘Strip’ collection includes three sculptural vases and two bowls of different sizes. A sequence of vertical strips with rhythmical offsets, the collection transitions their square base into a circular top edge. Metallic highlights between each strip generate an intricacy within each design.

The ‘Lapp’ collection comprises a family of vases of different sizes in varying combinations of matt and gloss ceramic finishes. Informed by the motion of a liquid droplets on a solid surface, the design creates openings and voids that allow for many different floral arrangements at the top - as well as on the sides - of each vase.

Defined by the fluid lines of Zaha Hadid’s sketches, the ‘Weave’ collection of vases incorporates lines that interweave and diverge to express their interplay of fluidity and symmetry.

Also launching during London Design Festival, the 'Concept to Completion' exhibition at Zaha Hadid Gallery provides insight into projects by Zaha Hadid Architects set to open in 2020.
