Zaha Hadid Design, established in 2006 by Zaha Hadid, under the lead of Woody Yao and Maha Kutay, pushes the boundaries of contemporary design using the latest technological, and material innovations in collaboration with the world’s most respected brands. The ZHD portfolio includes commissions from a wide range of design disciplines such as fashion accessories, jewellery, limited edition furniture pieces, interiors, exhibition and set-design. To respond to the demand for her work on a commercial level, the label, ‘Zaha Hadid Design Collection’ was developed, and features a selection of homeware and giftware, which are retailed globally in store, and online.
As an architect and designer, Zaha Hadid’s work explored spatial concepts at all scales. When speaking of her work as a designer Hadid explained “My product designs and architecture have always been connected; some of our earliest projects were designs for products and interiors. These design pieces are very important to me and my team. They inspire our creativity by providing an opportunity to express our ideas through different scales and through different media; an essential part of our on-going design investigation,”
ZHD has a gallery space, located in London, which acts as a showcase for the furniture and product design program, as well as a revealing look into Zaha Hadid’s process through a selection of work from the joint archives of Zaha Hadid Design and Zaha Hadid Architects. The ZH Gallery is also host to temporary exhibitions featuring emerging designers, as well as a venue for events, talks, and performances rooted in contemporary culture.
