For over a month Slamp has been co-protagonist at the Dubai Leila Heller Gallery bringing the fascinating, brightly masterpieces born from the collaboration with the Archistar Zaha Hadid, in a framework completely dedicated to her.
Aria Transparent, Aria and Avia are three lighting pieces which illustrate the strong relationship between Slamp and Zaha Hadid. The works can be admired until today in the most important gallery of United Arab Emirates.
In particular, Aria Transparent, the latest Zaha Hadid creation, is based on a groundbreaking lighting system. The lamp was exhibited for the first time at the Salone del Mobile 2015. It features natural and unconventional shapes gathered into 50 all-different Cristalflex® / Lentiflex® layers which transform it into a vivid artwork.
The passage from a semi-tectonic architecture to a later semi-liquid, a typical feature of the iraqi designer, is consistently illustrated through 30 of the most rapresentative collections of her career.
Emirates capital acknowledges the importance of Slamp and Archistar cooperation, mostly owed to Leila Heller, which attempts to create a bond between eastern and western artistic worlds.
