We selected luxury dining tables by Zaha Hadid for you. David Gill Gallery and Zaha Hadid started their collaboration in 2007 with Dune Formations, an interior landscape of furniture pieces.
Zaha Hadid‘s final furniture collection for London’s David Gill Gallery is made of walnut and leather, a reference to vintage furniture from the 50s and 60s. UltraStellar is the last luxury furniture collection that Hadid created for her long-term gallerist and close friend David Gill before she suffered a fatal heart attack at the age of 65.
‘UltraStellar’ Dining Table
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 interior designer aimed to create sturdy pieces that appear lightweight.
The large round dining table features an oval-shaped top with a lenticular glass eye at the centre. This is gold to interior design. These luxury dining tables were done with walnut and fibreglass.
“My partner was inspired by seeing some of the timber antiques from the 50s and 60s” – Patrik Schumacher
“We’ve been looking at furniture for a while and looking recently at carbon fibre and trying to achieve more lightness and robustness at the same time. We realised that timber can be very strong and very light.” – Patrik Schumacher
‘Liquid Glacial’ Dining Table
The Liquid Glacial acrylic dining table designed by the interior designer embeds surface complexity and reflection within a powerful fluid dynamic. The curved shapes are intended to mimic the forms of melting glacial ice. Horizontal sections of the stools slope gently into vertical supports to look like pouring liquid.
Patterns are milled into the clear surfaces to refract light through the material and create dappled shadows. One of the stools is tinted blue, intended to evoke the appearance of rippled water frozen in time.
“The Liquid Glacial series has pushed the boundaries of materiality and innovation; part of the process of our ongoing design investigation.” – Zaha Hadid
The luxury dining table is suspended between fluid movement and stasis, as if formed in the depths of space. Gentle waves and ripples pulse beneath the flat surface of the table-top, while the legs pour from the horizontal in a dramatic frozen vortex like water. The use of transparent acrylic amplifies this effect, adding depth and complexity through a kaleidoscopic display of light and infinite refractions. The result is a beautiful luxury dining table that inherits a myriad of colours from its surroundings and continually adapts with the observer’s changing viewpoint. It is also available as a coffee table.
One of the best interior designer ever and she will never be forgotten. What do you think about these magnifient and genius collections?
