Zaha Hadid's work has been widely praised and criticised and sometimes her unceasing presence in print can be overwhelming. However, I do have a soft spot for Hadid as we are both former graduates of the Inchbald School of Design. Her latest piece entitled 'Kloris’, a cluster of sculptural seating elements inspired by the shapes of flower petals, made its presence felt at Sotheby's Chatsworth Beyond the Limits exhibit 2008. When I saw Kloris displayed outdoors in the very traditional setting of Chatsworth House I felt a renewed interest and enthusiasm for her work. Whether you enjoy her projects or not Hadid's work has the status of a manifesto towards a new design language for urbanism, architecture and the world of products, but enough of that, I will let you interpret for yourself.
