For the first time, an exhibition is being displayed throughout the entire Cité, reaching the permanent collections and the library and opens out a dialogue between the pieces and the museums' collections, revealing what makes architect furniture specific and original.
Through prototypes, single pieces, limited edition or mass productions laid out around the whole Cité, the exhibition invites visitors to discover the furniture production of architects from 1959 to the present day.
With near 300 pieces, and more than 125 architects and nearly 90 editors represented this exhibition is an invitation to take a stroll through the Cité, discovering the furniture creations of great figures and personalities in architecture in the last decades.
Designs by Zaha Hadid include the Vortexx Chandelier for Sawaya & Moroni with Zumtobel, Iceberg Seating, Tippy Lounge Chair, and Z-Chair for Sawaya & Moroni, the Le-A Coffee Table for Leblon Delienne, the Tea and Coffee Towers for Alessi, The Aqua Table for Established & Sons, and the Liquid Glacial Chair for the David Gill Gallery.
