  • Launched for 2018 Zaha Hadid Design Collection

The Cell collection of three stainless steel candle-holders draws inspiration from the replication and growth of cellular organisms – the individual points, the ‘nuclei’, are connected by a dramatic reflective landscape, which appears to hover in mid-air.

Every angle of this form has been considered and honed, so that in profile the edge thickness slightly varies – although this presented a considerable challenge in fabrication, it has produced a subtle, uncompromising and flawless quality.

In addition, the variety of heights, sizes and the palette of different finishes in the collection invite the user to multiply, reconfigure and stack the different elements like modules.

Recent additions to the Cell family of pieces include the platter in Nero Marquina or Statuario marble, and the plate and bowl set in porcelain. The monochromatic colour palette accentuates their materiality, while a linear channel carved into the surface of the platter and plate enables objects to nest within their volumes.
