RE/Form Carpet Collection by Zaha Hadid Design for Royal Thai
Located within the colonnade of Shanghai Exhibition Center,
the installation incorporates the RE/Form carpet collection
by Zaha Hadid Design for Royal Thai.
Inspired by themes that feature prominently in Zaha Hadid’s work
including pixelated landscapes, striated lines,
ribbon-like projections and organic cellular form,
the RE/Form collection captures Hadid’s
signature use of interweaving, layering
and the play of light and shadow.
The ‘Skyrunner’ installation incorporates a bespoke carpet
that has been created to integrate the
RE/Form collection’s original ‘Pixel’ design
with an intricate overlay of the three collaborators’ logos.
Extending the length of the colonnade,
the installation creates a pixelated landscape
that weaves with the rhythm of the neoclassical columns
and reaches skywards to 5m at two points
within the colonnade.
