The untimely and sad death of Zaha Hadid has left Spanish firm Porcelanosa in the enviable position of being the only firm in possession of a full range of sanitary and brassware designed by the great architect. Its Noken Vitae bathroom collection, which launched last month, bears all the hallmarks of the office’s output, the concept of flowing water playing beautifully into ZHA’s aesthetic. The concept extends from toilet, bidet, sink and bath to brassware, vanity mirrors and shelving to create a range of porcelain that seems to melt in front of your eyes. Given that each piece is hand made and finished, it’s likely that, mourning aside, the cost will bring a tear to them too.
