Here at DMR we are very excited for the arrival of this new Georg Jensen collection, designed by the late Zaha Hadid. Hadid had recently put the finishing touches to the Lamellae collection and these pieces are a testament both to her extraordinary eye as a designer and the effortless way she enabled the simple and the complex to coexist.
Beautifully organic and powerful, each piece in the Zaha Hadid Collection takes inspiration from Hadid’s architecture, referencing the undulating silhouettes seen in many of her structures. As with the natural, fluid outlines of these buildings, her jewellery designs echo nature’s distinct sculptural forms. The pieces, crafted in sterling silver, are carefully engineered to feel voluptuously tactile. In fact, the way in which jewellery itself is worn is reimagined: rings sweep gently across the hand or soar playfully above the finger; an elegant cuff bracelet engages in a natural play of light, wrapped around the wrist in a deceptively simple twist of silver.
The collection arrives at DMR in November and we are now accepting pre-orders for this highly anticipated collection. The entire collection will be on show in our Altrincham showroom from the 15th – 20th November and at Liverpool One between the 24th – 27th November.

Zaha Hadid had achieved international prominence as one of the world’s foremost architects and designers when she died unexpectedly in March 2016. A thoroughly contemporary thinker and designer, her creative vision was defined by vital, flowing forms and an unmistakably bold presence. She studied mathematics at the American University of Beirut, then moved to London to study architecture in the 1970s, and in 1979 established the practice that bears her name. In her career, she designed sports stadiums, theatres, operahouses, art galleries, shoes and a car, among other objects. The Zaha Hadid Collection for Georg Jensen was her first collaboration with the Danish design house. “Working with Georg Jensen presented an opportunity to express our ideas in different scales and through different media. Our starting point was the many links to nature at Georg Jensen,” Hadid said, speaking about the Collection earlier this year. “There is an inherent integrity within the organic structural logic found in nature, and we often look at the coherence of natural systems when we work to create environments. Our challenge was to translate that into something that can be worn; to reinterpret the rich history and tradition of the Georg Jensen design approach into something new.”
