Zaha Hadid Architects creates marble Tau vases and Quad tables for Italian stone company Citco 

Exhibited at Salone del Mobile this year, Citco’s Tau vases, designed by Zaha Hadid Architects (ZHA), are made from four different types of marble and  available in five sizes and shapes. The design shows the complexity of natural growth systems with carved furrows and ridges, highlighting the contrast between the fluidity of the outlook and hardness of the marble.

Also available in five sizes,  Quad tables have rounded corners which resemble fabric that been stretched to the floor. According to ZHA, "its fluid surfaces appear taut and pleated, denying the inherent unmalleability of its structure."
