ZHA SHOWROOM TO BE LAUNCHED AT THE LONDON FESTIVAL OF ARCHITECTURE (29.06.2012)
Friday, June 29, 2012:
ZHA showroom to be launched at the London Festival of Architecture on July 3rd to showcase selected design objects by Zaha Hadid. The showcase will feature among others floating staircase.
The new floating staircase maintains the lightness of the gallery space. Each suspended step is articulated as a separate ribbon cast from Ductal, an ultra-high performance concrete with exceptional structural as well as aesthetic qualities. The tensile strength of Ductal allows the ribbons to remain relatively thin with each tread cast from a single adjustable mould that was engineered in Italy by Il Cantiere. The floating staircase has been designed to be demountable.
Other designs to be displayed are: The Peak Site Plan (1983), Aqua Table (2005), Seamless Collection (2006), Belu Bench (2005), Lotus (2008), Cirrus (2008), Kloris (2008), and Seoul Desk & Table (2009).Wolf Colony
