This is, at the same time, a special tribute to its creator: the famous architect, Zaha Hadid.

It is a fact that Zaha Hadid is an inseparable leading figure in contemporary design. Creative and widely ahead of her time, she was a pioneer in her interpretations and she was able to see further, by conceiving and creating innovative projects with character and state-of-the-art design.

In addition to this, Zaha Hadid also won other important awards, such as the Mies van del Rohe, in 2003; or the Paremium Imperiale, in 2009; without forgetting about the noble honour as the Dame Commander of the Order of the British Empire.

After that, she was soon behind unique projects around the world, such as the Glasgow Riverside Museum, the Beijing Galaxy Soho project, or the Dominion Moscow office building, among many others.

In the design field, the Anglo-Iraqi architect also developed a huge number of avant-garde masterpieces, like the acclaimed bathroom collection, Vitae, one of the last designs from her creative mind.

Done by Noken, and provided with the high quality and technology endorsed by the designs from the PORCELANOSA Grupo; Vitae turns out to be a bathroom collection full of innovation and sustainability.
