Zaha Hadid Architects created a collection of vases for the Italian stone company Citco, having previously designed a series of sculptural marble tables and a black granite shelving unit for the brand. The collection debuted at Salone del Mobile 2015.
The Tau Vases appear organic and delicate in nature, almost flower petal-like, but their marble material defies expectations with what looks like pleated grooves. The vases are available in five sizes in various marbles.
A set of five, the ‘tau vases’ appear organic; emerging as a series of intricately rendered pleats designed to express the formal complexity of natural growth systems. appearing as delicate as flower petals, the fragile aesthetic of the vases belies the solidity of their material. Four different marble types have been used to complete the family, ranging from the dark ‘bardiglio nuvolato’ to the pale ‘statuario’ finish.
