Silver Bowl for Sawaya & Moroni: Product Information

23 Apr 2008

Sawaya & Moroni Bowl

A fluid form of curvilinear geometry, this silver bowl is a continuation of the morphological design language Zaha Hadid has explored and developed over the past three decades.

The elegant sculptural mass of the bowl is slightly concave in its centre and responds to the diffusion of energies that are generated at its perimeter, inviting an exploration of natural forces and affording a unique contextual relationship within any environment.

Whilst at first appearing unscripted and spontaneous, the total fl uidity of the bowl’s volume follows the overriding formal logic of Hadid’s research into systems of continuous transformations and smooth transitions. The silver bowl further develops this dialogue, allowing the architect to capture the ephemeral qualities and diffused forms of clouds, solidifying them in sterling silver.

The bowl’s evolutionary lineage is apparent in Hadid’s past projects: Z-Scape Furniture for Sawaya & Moroni (2003); the Tea & Coffee Set for Alessi (2003); the Aqua Table for Established & Sons (2005); the Hotel Puerta America interiors (2005); and Elastika for Design Miami (2006).

Zaha Hadid has generated an additional dimensional relationship beyond the refl ection of light from the bowl’s surface. By encouraging an exploration into the dichotomy between the powerful solidity of sterling silver and the organic fluidity of its form, Hadid has created an exquisite and sensual piece that continues her thirty-year repertoire of morphological conception.
