UltraStellar: Zaha Hadid’s final furniture collection for London’s David Gill Gallery that as a mid-century touch and it’s made of walnut and leather, a reference to vintage furniture from the 50s and 60s.
David Gill Gallery and Zaha Hadid started their collaboration in 2007 with Dune Formations, an interior landscape of furniture pieces with non-specific uses, for the Venice Biennale. This collaboration led to the creation of the first Liquid Glacial collection in 2012.
UltraStellar is the last furniture collection that Hadid created for her long-term gallerist and close friend David Gill before she past away in March at the age of 65.
The collection – finished by her practice, Zaha Hadid Architects – references mid-century furniture through its use of wood rather than Hadid’s typical material of choice, clear acrylic.
Walnut, chosen for its colour, is curved into Hadid’s famous fluid and sinuous lines. The designer aimed to create sturdy pieces that appear lightweight.
“My partner was inspired by seeing some of the timber antiques from the 50s and 60s,” explained Patrik Schumacher, who worked closely with Hadid on UltraStellar.
