A major exhibition, showcasing the key objects developed by Zaha Hadid Design over the last 15 years, will fill the Zaha Hadid Architects designed space at Roca London Gallery from 24 May 2022 through to the end of the year.
The exhibition is being staged to celebrate a decade of working in the building that ZHA designed for Roca in 2011. The sculptural spaces of the striking 1,100m2 gallery will become the site for an immersive installation of ZHD’s portfolio of pioneering designs, from fashion and jewellery, to home accessories and furniture, carpets and lighting. First time UK exhibits include a new furniture range made in collaboration with Japanese high tech brand Karimoku and jewellery designed for Tateossian.
The collaborative output is well represented in the exhibition, including furniture developed with David Gill Gallery; lighting for Slamp and Lasvit; shoes designed for United Nude and Lacoste; jewellery made for Bulgari and Tateossian; and crystal bowls and vases designed for Lalique.
The objects date back to the founding of the design practice in 2006 and are brought up to the present day with the installation of the 2022 collection of elegant wooden furniture made with Japanese brand Karimoku.
The multi-award-winning Roca London Gallery by Zaha Hadid Architects hosts a rolling programme of cultural exhibitions and events on a variety of themes within the fields of architecture, design and sustainability.
Influential figures from the worlds of architecture and design have spoken at the gallery and presented their work, including Kengo Kuma, Lord Foster and Daniel Libeskind.
