Zaha’s final piece of art is the Mew Table for Sawaya & Moroni

It is still hard to believe that she isn’t here anymore. Zaha Hadid has left behind a legacy that will take a long time to fill. Her incorporation of contemporary zest to conventional designs earned her respect, admiration and undoubted fascination. Her last piece of art, which she completed a few days before her demise due to a heart attack, is being shown at Italian brand Sawaya & Moroni’s showroom for the Milan Design Week 2016.

Zaha’s design is the ‘mew’ table. It is made of a ‘high-density high polyurethane structure emerging from a single enveloping figure, expressing a fluid origami in which surfaces come together in a unique synthesis’. It has a horizontal vein that cuts through the table, where two curving points meet. The top of the table looks like an aerial view of a river tributary. As is evident in all her work, there is a sensual rhythm to the mew table too. The table is available in vivid red, black or white.
