Zaha Hadid, is one of the most recognized architects of modern time, she was the first women and Muslim to win the Pritzker Architect Prize (referred to as the Nobel prize in architecture) back in 2004. Her buildings can be easily recognized by their futuristic and geological aspect. Hadid likes to experiment with human-made technology and natural landscapes; this, combined with extensive research and practice over the last 30 years of her life is what gives shape to her final creations. She has collaborated with countless designers including Karl Lagerfeld (to build the Chanel pavilion which is now displayed in Paris), Lacoste and Melissa (to create a limited edition of footwear), to name a few. Even more, Hadid has worked with several interior design companies to offer a small collection of furniture.
Last year Hadid worked with Citco, an Italian interior design brand known for their marble creations, to come up with ‘The Secret Garden’ Pavilion presented at Salone del Mobile. Thanks to this project, Hadid received the award “Woman of Marble 2012”. Following its great success, the duo have decided to work together once again to launch a new collection of marble tables. The collection of tables will be available in three different shapes and in either Black Marquina or Bianco di Covelano. They can be seen starting tomorrow at Salone del Mobile, located in Fonderia Napoleonica Eugenia, her exhibition is called Multiplicities.
