The celeste jewellery pieces reflect the fl uid movements, dynamic forms and seamless complexity of the vision Zaha Hadid has explored and developed over the past three decades.

The liquid, curvilinear shapes of the necklace and the cuff follow the formal logic of continuous transformations observed in Hadid’s morphological research.
