  The Z.CAR is a two-seater city car with a
  three-wheel base.
  Using hydrogen as a source of energy it
  is a very quiet zero-emission vehicle.


   The body consists of lightweight
   carbon-fibre composite with a large
   asymmetric door hatch giving the
   passengers a panoramic vision.


   A shortened wheelbase then also
   requires less parking-space

   Why is the shape of the car streamlined?

The angle of the passenger pod is speed
adjusted. At low speeds it is in the
upper position and gives the driver a
better street vision.

At higher   speeds the pod lowers on
the hinged rear suspension, moving the car‟s
center of gravity closer to the road for
safer handling and improved
aerodynamics.


The steering wheel connects with “drive-
bywire” technology to motors that operate
the steering mechanism and it holds
controls that manage other functions.

The design idea of these
chandeliers are based on
fluidity and seamlessness.
Their complex curvilinearity
follows a double
Helix, connecting its beginning to
its end and therefore forming an
endless ribbon of light.

Direct as well as indirect light
can be emitted to the environment.
Consequently different lighting
atmospheres may be created
by the user in order to match the
specific space in which the
chandelier is installed.

MOON sofa is modular seating
systems. Each unit can be
rotated, interlocked, and all

geometries are used by Zaha
Hadid to achieve a smooth

spaces and units.

    The inspiration for the „Seamless‟ furniture
    collection is the concept of „seamless
    fluidity‟.
    The latest development in three
    dimensional design software and the
    most cutting edge manufacturing
    techniques help to make such furniture a
    possibility.
    These unique pieces explore :
    soft meets sharp,
    the combination of convex and concave


    What do you think is meant by the concept
    Seamless fluidity?

What do you think is the
inspiration for the Mesa
table?



Pulled chewing gum?




The Mesa table takes the
idea of a table back to
basics:
ground support and a
surface,
between these two, a
structure is created in
which the gaps (voids)
express the form as much
as the solids.
