Z-Chair by Zaha Hadid for Sawaya & Moroni
Updated: Jan 27, 2020
Geometric abstractions inform the design's linear loop, which is articulated along its path in a language that alternates thin wire streams and large surface to provide both ergonomic affordances and inherent stability to the overall shape. The dichotomy between the elegance of the composition and its articulation is negotiated through a subtle play of contrasting angular corners and wide, smooth curves. The resulting form echoes the calligraphic gesture of Hadid's two dimensional works; a controlled brush stoke on a canvas, the perfect synthesis of an idea: the sketch.
The design of the Z-Chair Chair summarizes the essence of contemporary design and the research developed by Zaha Hadid Architects over the last three decades. A simple three-dimensional gesture zigzags in the space as part of the continued discourse between form and function, elegance and utility, differentiation and continuity.
Z-Chair is made from polished stainless steel and is available in a limited number of 24 pieces only.
