Cell Bowls

Cellular organisms were the visual reference for these sculptural bowls, which have been rafted by Zaha Hadid Design from polished stainless steel in silver and black.

Appropriately named Cell Bowls, they have curved forms with intricate perforations made by a robotically controlled laser.

The bowls can be used as ornaments or as tableware, and have a finish that makes them suitable for holding food.

Pulse Glassware

The Pulse Glassware collection comprises a series of ornaments with pleated surfaces formed from hand-blown glass.

The undulating surfaces extend around the edges and base of the glassware, which the studio described as a "complex technical challenge" to design. As a result of being handmade, each piece has a unique finish, colour and size.

As its name suggests, the Swirl collection comprises a pair of crystal-glass bowls designed to emulate "a swirling vortex".

"The polished surface of the bowl beautifully captures the continuous dynamism, adding a touch of sophistication to any table or display," said Zaha Hadid Design.

"It is sure to become a cherished centrepiece in any home or a thoughtful gift for loved ones."

Prime Scented Candle Duo

A geometric exoskeleton characterises the porcelain containers of the Prime Scented Candle Duo range. While offering a distinctive look to the product, it also creates playful patterns of light and shadow when lit.

The candles are available in white with a scent of orange flower, sandalwood and fig, and in black with a blend of gardenia, tonka bean and wood. The range comes as a set, with one of each colour and fragrance.

Braid Double Candle Holder

Two faceted pillars connected at the base define these candle holders, which the studio modelled on its founder Zaha Hadid's tower designs.

"During the concept development stage, we often look at references that exist in Zaha's repertoire – more specifically, the Braid series reflects our investigation into the nature of the tower form," it said.

"The resulting objects are complex and precise, and they were a challenge to produce with this level of detail."

Hadid's work in tower design also informed the angular forms of these crystal-glass vessels, which form the Shimmer collection.

While one of the vessels contains a candle, the other is intended as a tea light holder – though both can also be used as storage containers. They are made in pink, silver, gold, black, slate blue, olive green and purple.

Tyne is a jewellery collection composed of a ring, bracelet, pendant, pin and cufflinks, and is exclusively available in black.

"All pieces are informed by mathematical studies in the field of the minimal surfaces, which are self-intersecting and without constraint," explained Zaha Hadid Design.

"The result maximises tactility through the interplay of solid and void."

Infini Eyewear

Zaha Hadid Design worked with eyewear brand The Owner to create this range of four gender-neutral sunglasses.

Named Infini Eyewear, they are made from stainless steel in several colours, polished and fitted with tinted lenses. They also come with a bespoke pouch.

"This was a good match in many ways as the design language of The Owner is very architectural, which is unique in this industry in that each design is expressive, and brings to life a new idea," the studio said.
