Designs to remember
In November of 2014, representatives from Danish design house Georg Jensen met with Pritzker Prize-winning architect Zaha Hadid at the brand’s London studio and began designing an eight-piece collection inspired by some of Hadid’s most jaw-dropping architectural creations.
The collaboration was Hadid’s first with the Danish brand, and the resulting items (which Hadid reviewed and approved in March of this year before her untimely passing at age 65) debut this month. The Georg Jensen Zaha Hadid Collection includes three cuff bangles and five bold rings available in sterling silver or sterling silver–plated with black rhodium set with black diamonds. Many of the designs’ dramatic curves and fluid lines mirror the mountain-like forms of Hadid’s iconic Wangjing Soho building in Beijing.
The jewelry, along with the nearly 1,000 structures in Hadid’s portfolio, helps ensure that the boundary-breaking architect will have a legacy that lives on through a multitude of mediums.
