Zaha Hadid x Georg Jensen

When I put this blog post together earlier this week, I could never have imagined that I would be sharing it in such awfully sad circumstances.  Zaha was a pioneering figure in the fields of architecture and design, as well as an inspirational role model for women the world over.  She will be greatly missed. 


At last month’s Baselworld watch and jewellery show, held annually in Switzerland, Georg Jensen, the Danish design house, unveiled a stunning capsule collection in collaboration with Zaha Hadid.

The Iraqi-British architect, who was made a Dame in the 2012 New Year’s Honours List, was also the first woman to receive the Pritzker Architecture Prize, considered the Nobel Prize of architecture, and I first became fascinated with her work when I was researching the impact of architecture on fashion design for a London College of Fashion project.

Her buildings, such as the London Aquatic Centre for the 2012 Olympic Games, are instantly recognisable by their beautiful sculptural shapes and sweeping curves…
