Developed as an urban sculpture for seating and resting, the striated articulation of the Serac Bench emerges seamlessly from the landscape, each layer taking its own unique trajectory in reaction to latent forces that disperse – and ultimately coalesce – the many strata of the bench. The Serac Bench showcases the fluid, continuous nature of Zaha Hadid’s work – exploring relationships between solid and void, object and ground, form and function; an evolutionary lineage evident throughout her repertoire.

The bench has been developed in resin quartz, a tough and durable material that when shaped into dynamic curvilinear forms, transitions into a softer, fluid and tactile surface. The sparkling crystal balances a stunning light play with mesmerizing depth.
