 Seoul Collection Tea Service
     
 
  Seoul Design Olympiad 2009
Jamsil Sports Complex, Seoul, Korea
October 9 – October 29, 2009


Inspired by the ancient traditions of Korean culture and lifestyle, the tea service designed by Zaha Hadid Architects has re-interpreted the components and cermonial aspects inherent to Korea's way of life throughout history into a fluid, seamless vision of the future both through material and form utilizing digital design and fabrication processes to realize their transformation.

The set is encased in a carbon fiber molded outer shell and lid which act as the protective case for the delicate ceramic components within while simultaneously performing the role of a service tray once the lid is removed. The delicate components consist of tea kettle, 4-6 tea cups, milk and sugar containers as well as several serving spoons.

Zaha Hadid's Tea Service proudly represents the first of many future pieces to be designed for and included in the Seoul Collection : A collection of Design Art/Furniture, Architectural Products and Lifestyle Objects inspired by the city of Seoul's commitment to the advancement of architecture and design.

NY Projects, Inc. proudly presents Total Fluidity: Zaha Hadid and Patrik Schumacher as an exhibition that presents an overview of Hadid’ and Patrik Schumacher’s work that makes evident the shifts in her body of work. It includes a wide range of mediums: prints, urban plans, furniture, design objects, and video installation. At the outset of her career, Hadid’s architectural practice followed Suprematist and Constructivist ideals. Based on floating lines and planes frozen in time and space, her early representation of architecture presented broken, compound angles with acute interstices that expressed considerable tension. These early projects were most commonly represented in large-format paintings. Her reconsideration of the architectural drawing, through nontraditional floor plans with spatial configurations open to interpretation, had a major impact on her architecture. Since then, she has moved from abstraction and fragmentation to fluidity and seamless complexity.
