When Zaha Hadid died of a heart attack in March, it shocked the design world. Not only because the 65-year-old architect, the author of some of the past century’s most alluring buildings and the first woman to win the industry’s prestigious Pritzker prize, was far too young, and too important, to go in such a common way. But also because she left behind a raft of unfinished work, from Manhattan skyscrapers just under construction to a collection of furniture, called UltraStellar, commissioned by the David Gill Gallery in London.
The collection, a mix of walnut, leather, and glass woven into her signature alien-like curved forms, was eventually completed by her studio — her final, posthumous contribution to the world of industrial design, and a fitting farewell to an icon. Take a look at the full range below.
