Clerkenwell Design Week 2013: Zaha Hadid has opened a gallery in Clerkenwell, central London, to display her furniture and design to the public (+ slideshow).
The ground floor and lower floor of the Zaha Hadid Design Gallery contains furniture, lighting, jewellery and paintings by the architect.
There's also a floor of architectural models upstairs, available to view by appointment.
Following the launch during Clerkenwell Design Week, the gallery and showroom is now open to the public from Tuesday to Saturday between midday and 6pm at 101 Goswell Road, London, EC1V 7EZ.
We reported on the highlights from the design fair last week, including lamps that look like vats from a milking parlour and a target made of reflective pixels that change with the light – see all products and events from Clerkenwell Design Week.
Last week two temporary wing-like seating stands were removed from Hadid's Aquatics Centre at the London 2012 Olympic Park, allowing the building to be seen for the first time as it was originally designed.
Developers recently unveiled images of Hadid's proposed 60-storey residential skyscraper in Miami, USA – see all architecture by Zaha Hadid.

Here's some more information about the gallery:
Zaha Hadid Design Gallery
Zaha Hadid Design opens a new Gallery and Showroom featuring innovative product and furniture designs over 2 floors. Also featuring paintings and other artwork by Zaha Hadid.
Zaha Hadid Design creates a wide variety of pieces for living and for the home, from sculptural jewellery to limited edition furniture, experimenting with architectural projects at a small scale, exploring the latest technological and material innovations, as well as responding directly to commercial briefs.
Her portfolio spans a concept for an entire room to bespoke jewellery commissions. The gallery, arranged over two floors, is the first opportunity to view exclusive new designs recently shown in Milan, alongside a showcase of iconic products and original artwork.
Many of the products are available to buy so if you are interested please ask. The space hosts an ever-changing programme of exhibitions and collaborations. We have recently hosted a pop-up hair salon and we regularly showcase emerging fashion and jewellery designers.
As an architect and designer, Zaha Hadid's designs explore spatial concepts at all scales, from the city to individual product, interior and furniture commissions.
Her projects are internationally renowned and have won the Royal Institute of British Architects Stirling Prize in two consecutive years.
She was awarded the Pritzker Prize in 2004, becoming the first woman to receive architecture's highest honour, and her Aquatics Centre was the centrepiece of the 2012 Olympic Games in London. She is also engaged in experimental research, leading an architectural practice and teaching.
