Zaha Hadid Reinterprets An Iconic Collection For Bulgari

Combining the unmistakable vision of one of the world's greatest architects with the expertise and creativity Bulgari is infamous for, the B.zero1 Design Legend collection marries equal parts jewellery and art. Unveiled during Miami Art & Design Week, the ring and pendant were inspired by the structural integrity and timelessness of Rome's Colosseum and are Hadid's reinterpretation of the classic B.zero1 design, which has been a iconic cornerstone of Bulgari's jewellery archives for over 17 years. 

Zaha Hadid For Bulgari

The Bulgari B.zero1 necklace and ring

Revealed at the Raising Malawi fundraising event hosting by the founder of the organisation, Madonna, Jean-Christope Babin, CEO of Bulgari commented on the launch, "Bulgari is proud to support the Raising Malawi organisation and its important mission, and we are pleased to introduce our new B.zero1 design jewellery collection at such an affair." 

Launched with a four-band ring in pink gold, two thinner three-band options in white or pink gold and a pink gold pendant, each piece fuses together two hallmarks of the design house, the Tubogas motif and the Bulgari double logo. First launched in 1999, the look and feel of the B.zero1 collections have always stood for innovation, not convention, an understanding Hadid took upon herself to liberate traditional jewellery conceptions and merge geometry and architecture into her process, producing a shared vision of both design powerhouses.
