Zaha Hadid Architects at Design Shanghai 2019

RE/Form Carpet Collection by Zaha Hadid Design for Royal Thai

Zaha Hadid Design had collaborated with Royal Thai and Kohler
to present the ‘Skyrunner’ installation at Design Shanghai 2019.

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.
