The london-based architect zaha hadid continuing to expand her repertoire with a series of works for CITCO, presented at salone del mobile during milan design week. the furniture collection consists of a shelving system, table and fireplace, all carved from granite, and white or black marble respectively.
‘Tela’ shelving system is carved of solid black granite composed with archetypal curves and cantilevers common in hadid’s architectural designs. the divergent form creates a sense of lightness, allowing the viewer to forget that the piece is formed from a massive block. the central support interweaves, allowing level shelves to extend beyond the object’s core, and adding to the piece’s immateriality.
