Porcelanosa, the Spanish manufacturer of high-end kitchen, tile, bath, and hardwood products, has partnered with the legendary late architect
Zaha Hadid on a bathroom collection called Vitae which focuses on the
fluidity of water. Hadid is widely regarded as one of the greatest architects in
the world, having led such innovative works as The Peak in Hong Kong, the
Kurfürstendamm in Berlin, and the Cardiff Bay Opera House in Wales.
The Vitae (meaning “life” in Latin) Collection features a groundbreaking
design in the style of Hadid. Fluid lines that evoke water flow are the theme
of the collection, with a name that illustrates the belief that water is where life
begins for many. The collection comprises nine selections, including faucets,
mirrors, a bathtub, washbasins, a toilet, bidet, and shelving. Dynamic in its
shapes and serving up an avant-garde personality, Vitae elements present
themselves as essential for the bathroom of the future.
Born in Baghdad in 1950, Hadid studied mathematics at the American
University of Beirut before starting her architectural journey in 1972 at the
Architectural Association in London and establishing her own practice
there—Zaha Hadid Architects—in 1979 before earning recognition
worldwide. Working with office partner Patrik Schumacher, her interest was
in the interface between architecture, landscape, and geology; her practice
integrated the use of innovative technologies, often resulting in unexpected
and dynamic architectural forms. In 2004, Hadid was the first woman to
win the Pritzker Architecture Prize. She was twice awarded the UK’s most
prestigious architecture award, the RIBA Stirling Prize.
