White in the City sculpture by Zaha Hadid

During the 2017 edition of the Milan Design Week, both at the Furniture Fair and at the Fuorisalone, a selection of product designs and artworks by Zaha Hadid is on view in various locations in Milan. It is a sort of tribute to the Iraqi-British architect, who passed away an year ago, on March 31, 2016.

Overall, the ensemble of micro exhibitions, which take place in many venues across the city, provides an overview of the work of Zaha Hadid as a designer, as well as as a visual artist.

Here is the list of products and artworks by Zaha Hadid Architects on view from 4 through 9 April, during the Milan design week.
