Liquid Glacial Tables by Zaha Hadid for Gill Galleries

The Liquid Glacial Table by Zaha Hadid is one stunning piece of furniture. The table design embeds surface complexity and refraction within a powerful fluid dynamic. The elementary geometry of the flat table top appears transformed from static to fluid by the subtle waves and ripples evident below the surface, while the table’s legs seem to pour from the horizontal in a vortex of frozen water.

The table top appears transformed from static to fluid by the subtle waves and ripples evident below the surface, while the table’s legs seem to pour from the horizontal in an intense vortex. The Liquid Glacial table consists of two smaller tables which are combined into an eye catching large dining table. This unique piece of art is cast in clear and coloured acrylic, which appears as if it was frozen in time while transitioning between the different states of water, liquid (water) to solid (ice). Its design embeds surface complexity and refraction within a powerful fluid dynamic.
