It Showcases the fluid, continuous nature of Zaha Hadid's work, exploring relationships between solid and void, object and ground, form and function; an evolutionary linage evident throughout her repertoire. The bench has been developed in resin quartz, a though and durable material that when shaped into dynamic curvilinear forms transitions into softer, fluid and tactile surface. the sparking crystal balances a stunning light play with mesmerizing depth.
