The liquid Glacial Table by Zaha Hadid

Design | January 18, 2013 |

The liquid Glacial Table has been nominated for the 2013 Designs of the Year Awards. The awards span seven categories and showcase the most innovative and imaginative designs from around the world over the past year. ZHA’s nominated project will be included in the “Designs of the Year” exhibition at the Design Museum, London from 20 March 2013. Category winners and the overall winner will be decided by a jury and announced on 17 April 2013.

The Liquid Glacial design embeds surface complexity and refraction within a powerful fluid dynamic. The elementary 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 in an intense vortex of water frozen time.

The transparent acylic material amplifies this perception; adding depth and complexity through a flawless display of infinite kaleidoscopic refractions. The result generates a wonderful surface dynamic that inherits a myriad of colours from its context and continually adapts wih the observer’s changing viewpoint. The form is of its creator; a design that does not compromise functionality or ergonomic requirements and a coherent evolution of her architectural narrative exploring movement through space.
