Late architect’s collection was inspired by silhouettes in nature
Famed late architect Zaha Hadid had collaborated with Danish jewellery design house Goerg Jensen on an eight piece collection comprising five rings and three cuff bangles.
Based on an organic yet powerful design theme, the collection is inspired by Hadid’s architecture.
It takes reference from natural silhouettes seen in some of her structures including striped reliefs and dramatic lines.
The pieces feature sterling silver and black rhodium set with black diamonds.
“There is an inherent integrity within the organic structural logic found in nature, and we often look at the coherence of natural systems when we work to create environments. Our challenge was to translate that into something that can be worn; to interpret the rich history and tradition of the Georg Jensen design approach into something new,” said Zaha of the collection.
“There was always a continuity in Zaha’s work and the same is true of this collection. Her aesthetic aligned with the history of our jewellery designs, celebrating nature’s seemingly simple yet mathematical forms. And our partnership honoured a century of collaborating with designers whose vision transforms the way we think,” said David Chu, Georg Jensen Chairman and Chief Creative Officer.
Zaha Hadid is one of the world’s most renowned Middle Eastern architects, having designed sports stadiums, theatres, opera houses, art galleries, shoes, and cars around the world - among other objects. She died unexpectedly in March 2016.For all the latest fashion trends from the UAE and Gulf countries, follow us on Twitter and Linkedin, like us on Facebook and subscribe to our YouTube page, which is updated daily.
