• Malea Coffee Table and Volta Bench for Citco

    20 April 2018

    (Milan Design Week, 17-22 April 2018) In recent years the association between Citco and Zaha Hadid Design has given rise to extraordinary projects, the result of a profound fusion of creative and expressive intent, taking inspirations from the world of nature and Citco’s expertise and advanced technology.

    Citco continues its collaboration with Zaha Hadid Design once again this year, presenting at the Milan Design Week 2018 with two new pieces: Volta Bench and Malea Coffee Table.

     

    Volta Bench

    Echoing Hadid’s calligraphic language, Volta is defined by a single dynamic gesture. The intertwined loop is articulated through a smooth transition between hard-edged surfaces and soft, fluid, lines describing the item’s function while ensuring stability to the overall design.

    Immaculately carved from a single block of granite, Volta combines ZHD’s seamless lines with Citco’s exquisite craftsmanship.

     

    Malea Coffee Table

    Mirroring the logic and coherence of nature, the design references the spiralling motif of seashells.

    Combining two interlocking elements carved from a block of onyx, Malea represents a coherent evolution of ZHD’s interest in exploring movement through space without compromising functionality or ergonomic requirements. The transparent acrylic material amplifies depth and complexity through a flawless display of refractions while the solid stone conveys stability and balance to the overall design.
