Zaha Hadid, founder of Zaha Hadid Architects, was awarded the Pritzker Architecture Prize (considered to be the Nobel Prize of architecture) in 2004 and the Stirling Prize in 2010 and 2011.
In 2007 she started her collaboration with David Gill Gallery, Dune Formations, for the Venice Biennale. In 2012, she realised a collection of spectacular new tables with David Gill, the Liquid Glacial series.
Liquid Glacial comprises a series of tables resembling ice-formations made from clear and coloured acrylic. The pristine geometry of the flat table top appears transformed from static to fluid by the subtle waves and ripples evident below the surface, while the table's legs seem to pour from the horizontal spiral of water frozen in time. Prices start at approx. $160.000 (€120.000) for the coffee table rendition of 'Liquid Glacial'.
