The Zaha Hadid Gallery is presenting the new RE/Form carpet collection by Zaha Hadid Design for Royal Thai during London Design Festival 2018.
RE/Form continues Royal Thai’s design-driven direction. The collection consists of 22 designs, inspired by four themes that feature prominently in Zaha Hadid’s work: striated lines, ribbonlike projections, pixelated landscapes and organic cellular shapes. Patterns within each grouping capture Hadid’s signature use of interweaving, layering and play with light and shadow. The designs introduce custom new colours for Royal Thai commercial carpets, with hues of turquoise, red and green in their colour palettes.
Translated into Axminster-loomed and hand-tufted designs, each design represents reconfiguration and transformation—the theme itself a reflection of Royal Thai’s recent reformation. RE/Form is a celebration of Hadid’s legacy and Royal Thai’s passion for inspiration.
The Zaha Hadid Gallery will also present the new 2018 Zaha Hadid Design Collection, together with Zaha Hadid Architects’ recent collaboration of 3D-printed furniture with Nagami as well as an exhibition by the studio’s Computation and Design research group (ZHCODE).
