Zaha Hadid Design Unveils New Luxury Bathroom Collection With Porcelanosa

Zaha Hadid Architects’ curious design aesthetic has dotted the skylines of the world’s greatest cities. We recently previewed two upcoming projects from the firm, a mixed-use tower in Melbourne that resembles a series of stacked vases and features a porous façade that helps reduce solar gain, as well as another mixed-use tower in Qatar that is shaped like a desert hyancinth, a flower indigenous to the area.

Now, Zaha Hadid Design has unveiled its latest endeavor, a new bath collection created in collaboration with Spanish company Porcelanosa. The nine-piece bath collection, called Vitae, is the latest addition to Porcelanosa’s Noken line, and its design shares a number of cues and similarities to Zara Hadid’s signature style. Vitae includes a toilet, a bidet, shelving, faucets, washbasins, mirrors, and a bathtub inspired by the earth’s most essential element, water.


Like the majority of Zaha Hadid’s most iconic buildings, each piece in the collection conveys a sense of fluidity. The designs aren’t your typical bathroom fare.


They feel abstract and organic in the same way many of the Iraqi-born British architect’s buildings do. Each piece was crafted entirely from Spanish manufacturer Porcelanosa’s finest porcelain.


According to Curbed, the combination of pieces in a space create a “dynamic, sensual flow.” For example, the double sink setup features a basin with “attenuated extensions” (acting as built-in soap dishes) which reach toward a small counter that separate the two.


The interplay between pieces in the collection doesn’t stop there. Pieces such as a towel rack, an additional floating shelf, and corresponding mirrors with built-in ledges add to the collections sense connection and fluidity.


The Vitae line is a letter of love to discerning designers looking to furnish the ultimate bathroom. Many of the pieces in the collection are handmade, and is a result of a three-year-long collaboration between Zara Hadid and Porcelanosa. Fittings in the new collection are available in chrome or white powder-coated aluminum.
