  • Catalogue Essay

    Hadid's designs examine the interrelationship of objects and their environment. Manufactured by Sawaya & Moroni, her Z-Scape furniture series features extended forms that vigorously engage the surrounding space.
    Combating the conventional appearance of assembled furniture, each piece exhibits sleek, continuous lines that create a molded, as opposed to constructed, aesthetic.
    Often ascribed with the names of natural phenomena, like Iceberg or Glacier, Hadid's furniture evokes both the movement and mutability of the eponymous landscape formations. Furthering this connection, each piece recalls both the irregular contours and sculptural monumentality that characterize the original sources of inspiration.
