The Fudge Pop-Up Salon was installed in a monochrome gallery space in Clerkenwell, alongside models and furniture designed by Hadid's studio.
"Zaha wanted to share that beyond buildings we have a large design portfolio of furniture and product design, and Fudge was excited to have her work as a backdrop to their avant garde approach to hairstyling," explained project architect Melodie Leung.
The salon was located on the lowest floor of the gallery, where a white relief model of one of Hadid's latest buildings protruded from one of the walls. Named King Adullah Petroleum Studies and Research Centre, this building is currently under construction in Saudi Arabia.

Black geometric shapes on the floor fanned out from the model, outlining the positions for each hairstyling station. "The black shapes were designed to integrate the stations with the relief," said Leung.
Other recent exhibitions by Hadid include a collection of paintings and installations in Madrid and a pleated metal funnel at the Venice Architecture Biennale.
