A silver bowl, hand wrought by Sawaya & Moroni in Milan – donated for auction to raise funds for Wolfsonian Florida International University.
This unique item embraces a fluid form of curvilinear geometry – sustaining the morphological design language explored and developed by Zaha Hadid over three decades. Its elegant sculptural mass, slightly concave at the center, responds to the diffusion of energies generated at its perimeter, inviting speculation on the behaviour of natural forces.
Apparently unscripted and spontaneous, in reality the total fluidity of the bowl’s volume follows the formal logic of Zaha Hadid’s research into systems of continuous transformations and smooth transitions. The bowl further develops this dialogue, seeking to capture the ephemeral qualities and diffuse forms of cloudscapes in solid silver.
