TOPOS Chair and Sunlounger by ZHA for iSiMAR

Launched this week at Salone del Mobile, TOPOS is a collection of outdoor furniture that celebrates Mediterranean living and unites Zaha Hadid Architects’ design expertise with iSiMAR’s experienced understanding of materials.

Named after the Greek word for place, the TOPOS collection encapsulates time with family and friends lounging by the sea, beside a swimming pool, or under a canopy of pine trees. The essence of these precious memories living outdoors are captured in a unique furniture design.

Informed by the geographical concept of topography, the TOPOS collection translates contour lines from maps into industrial design, depicting not only the Mediterranean landscapes but also the rich quality of life they offer. As contour lines on maps depict valleys and hills, the collection's design maps changes in gradient through its efficient use of materials.

Ensuring longevity in corrosive outdoor environments, TOPOS is crafted in galvanised steel chosen for its durability. The steel is 100% recycled and the components of each piece can be recovered and repurposed or recycled after reaching the end of its service life. Supporting their community and reducing the carbon emissions of transportation, iSiMAR source only from local suppliers of recycled steel.

With its contours adapting to each unique user, the TOPOS collection is defined by ergonomics, materiality and structure in the finest balance between personal comfort, material resilience and geometric expression. TOPOS is therefore the place where the industrial expertise of iSiMAR meets ZHA’s unwavering commitment to contemporary living and our everyday need to remind ourselves to enjoy the moment.

The TOPOS collection by Zaha Hadid Architects for iSiMAR is showcased at Salone del Mobile 2024, Stand E01, Hall 18, RHO Fiera Milan until 21st April.

The collection is also presented within the ‘Apartamento Spagnolo’ exhibition at Milan’s Palazzo Castiglioni, Corso Venezia 51 until 21st April.
