Vitae appears as an integral bathroom collection meant to arise as the new bathroom design. Noken and Zaha Hadid Design have come to a revolutionary notion for the bathroom. This new series features astounding elements that remind us of the spectacular designs created by Zaha Hadid.
Fluid lines that evoke water flow are the leitmotif of this outstanding collection. For this reason it has been named Vitae (“life” in latin), because in water is where all sort of life begins. This is Vitae, a collection with incomparable designs that will stand for a revolutionary notion in the bathroom.
Dame Zaha Hadid was widely regarded to be the greatest female architect in the world today. Born in Baghdad in 1950, she studied mathematics at the American University of Beirut before starting her architectural journey in 1972 at the Architectural Association in London.
By 1979 she had established her own practice in London – Zaha Hadid Architects – garnering a reputation across the world for her ground-breaking theoretical works including The Peak in Hong Kong (1983), the Kurfürstendamm in Berlin (1986) and the Cardiff Bay Opera House in Wales (1994).
Working with office partner Patrik Schumacher, her interest was in the interface between architecture, landscape, and geology; which her practice integrates with the use of innovative technologies often resulting in unexpected and dynamic architectural forms.
In 2004, Zaha Hadid became the first woman to be awarded the Pritzker Architecture Prize. She twice won the UK’s most prestigious architecture award, the RIBA Stirling Prize: in 2010 for the MAXXI Museum in Rome, and the Evelyn Grace Academy.
