At the crux of architecture, design, and the avant-garde is the internationally recognized architect Zaha Hadid. Known for her technical prowess as well as her steadfast, pioneering approach to female developed architecture, the late Zaha Hadid was a designer whose career was forged from vision and unmatched talent.
"I WANTED THE PIECE TO CONVEY SWAROVSKI’S ETHOS NOT JUST THROUGH ITS DESIGN, BUT THROUGH MATERIALITY"
— ZAHA HADID
Her eponymous company Zaha Hadid Architects created work that spanned the interrelated fields of urbanism, architecture and design. Ranging from furniture to city planning, Hadid’s aesthetic encompassed all scales of design with a nod towards the warped, anti-gravitational space of Russian avant-garde painting and sculpture.
Hadid's collaborations with Swarovski date back to 2007 with projects ranging from spiraling light installations (Crystal Palace, Salone del Mobile 2008) to the sculptural jewelry collection ‘Glace’ (Atelier Swarovski 2010).
