Zaha Hadid's Niche by Alessi

 

Fame British architect Zaha Hadid seldom produce affordable objects.  But when she does, make sure you pick them up as I'm sure they will become rare collectibles in the future.  Most of her interior objects are limited edition projects such as VorteXX’, 2005; it is a custom-coloured lacquered fiberglass-reinforced polyester, opaque acrylic, LEDs; this chandelier was sold for over $200,000 in 2008, or Black “Aqua” table; it is made of Polyurethane resin, silicone by Established & Sons, UK (furniture maker in UK that makes very expensive contemporary furnishings) in edition of 12; the table was sold for $217,000 in 2008.  

Luckily for the rest of us who do not have multimillion dollar budget to furnish our homes, Alessi has come up with a table centerpiece called Niche.  This centerpiece/ sculpture is composed of 5 separate pieces that you can rearrange them to your liking.  The form is reminiscent of Zaha Hadid's drawings and architecture.  You can use it to hold pen, erasers, pushpins on your desk or use it to hold nuts and M&Ms on your coffee table.  Personally I think it looks great just by itself as a piece of sculpture.  They can be purchased online at Alessi.
