The iconic B.zero1’s unmistakable symmetrical circular lines and the two intersecting circles bearing the BVLGARI logo has been one of the house’s icons ever since its launch almost twenty years ago. Bearing a number of architectural elements inspired by Rome’s famous Coliseum, there’s no better way to give the B.zero1 an update better than the design legend herself – the late, great, Zaha Hadid.
Zaha Hadid, famous for her deconstructivism in modern architecture, evolved in her works over time. Starting with angular aggressive forms like the Vitra Fire Station, Hadid progressed toward works that epitomise fluidity and movement such as the Dongaemun Design Plaza (DDP) and the Heydar Aliyev Centre.
The B.zero1, birthed in 1999, has also evolved over the years – and with this latest interpretation, the brand is exploring a certain beauty in deconstruction. Through Zaha Hadid’s expert vision of fluidity in deconstruction, together with Bulgari’s drive for innovation and craftsmanship, this collaboration marks a new chapter for the timeless B.zero1.C
Carefully deconstructing the central band of the B.zero1, its structure and uniformity is transformed into undulating gold waves. Held together with the iconic intersecting circles engraved with the BVLGARI logo, the birth of the Design Legend was born.
Available in Singapore from April 2017 in various styles, B.zero1 Design Legend will come in pink or white gold, with pink gold available in 3 band or 4 band styles. There will also be one with 3 bands in white gold, plus a pink gold pendant that rounds up the collection nicely. No word yet on their exact retail prices so do stay tuned for more updates.
