Zaha Hadid Hawks Furniture (the Expensive Kind) at Phillipe ‘Exhibition and Sale’

 Zaha Hadid Hawks Furniture (the Expensive Kind) at Phillipe Exhibition and Sale
A detail from Seamless: an ottoman?

Some breaking news from the Nation of Starchitecture: Zaha Hadid’s very first collection of furniture will be shown–and sold–late this fall at Phillips de Pury’s Chelsea HQ. The pieces in Seamless will be produced by the voguish new Established & Sons, whose prototype of Ms. Hadid’s Aqua Table was sold by Phillips in December “for a record breaking sum of $296,000.”

“It’s like flying over water,” Ms. Hadid said about the work before its auction.

In today’s Phillips press release she adds: ‘These unique furniture pieces are a direct evolution of our architectural language: soft meets sharp, combining repetition and variation, whilst balancing the smooth transition between otherwise disparate elements of furniture.” Whilst indeed.

Seamless, running from November 27 to December 15, will show Ms. Hadid’s first work produced since the ongoing Guggenheim retrospective.

Stay tuned to The Real Estate for an interview with the glorious furniture designer herself.
