Investigating the evolution of Zaha Hadid's formal language, the exhibition explores the interconnected fields of architecture and product design. A singular exhibition that features a variety of works - limited edition furniture, lighting objects, vases and other accessories - made from different materials including glass, marble and ceramic.
About the “Zaha Hadid Design Collection” on show at ME Milan Il Duca, Woody Yao, ZHA Director explains: “The strength of the collection lies in our ability to interpret the ordinary into something unexpected. When designing objects, Zaha was never constrained by a given use or spatial context and we continue to follow and draw strength from this approach, so that the collection has room to evolve without compromising the integrity of the design ”.
ME Milan Il Duca, a cosmopolitan, contemporary, design-oriented place therefore offers its guests, Milanese and visitors to the city, a rich and exclusive cultural program, The Culture Collective, which, in April, includes: the exhibition at inside the hotel for the whole month and, on Tuesday 9th, a Knowledge Sessions and a Cocktail Party.
