Zephyr Sofa for Cassina by Zaha Hadid Architect:

The sinuous shape of the Zephyr sofa was inspired by natural rock formations shaped by erosion. The application of subtractive processes that carve solid matter. The resulting formal language gives the Zephyr sofa increased ergonomic properties without compromising the design’s fluidity or proportion.

We feature architect-designed products from tables to cutlery, and from fruit bowls to sofas. Architects are constantly diversfying and have traditionally been associated with furniture design and with lighting design. More recently items such as jewellery and scarves have been designed by celebrated architects, for example by Zaha Hadid and Eva Jiricna.
Architects have long been known for designing furniture, especially chairs: for example Le Corbusier’s sofas, Marcel Breuer’s chairs and Eileen Gray’s occasional table. Some famous recent examples include architect Frank Gehry’s cardboard chairs.
