In 2014, now the late architect Zaha Hadid has designed a collection of silver jewellery for Danish design house Georg Jensen. The collaboration was Hadid’s first with the Danish brand, and resulted with eight-piece collection inspired by her architecture. Before her death, Hadid said of the collaboration, “Working with Georg Jensen presented an opportunity to express our ideas in different scales and through different media. Our starting point was the many links to nature at Georg Jensen.
There is an inherent integrity within the organic structural logic found in nature and we often look at the coherence of natural systems when we work to create environments. Our challenge was to translate that into something that can be worn; to reinterpret the rich history and tradition of the Georg Jensen design approach into something new.”
The collection consists of five rings and three bangles, produced in sterling silver and black rhodium-plated sterling silver with black diamonds. The pieces range from $600 to $30,000 retail and debuted on September 1st.
