Zaha Hadid has designed the Niche Centrepiece for Alessi Officina and it possesses all the smooth flowing transitions between its various forms, uniting jagged, angled and smooth surfaces and shapes; characteristics which are so prevalent in her work.
Made from black melamine Niche is whatever you want it to be. Designed as a table centrepiece it can also be used as a decorative element, a dish for snacks (such as olives which can be cradled in its concave surfaces) or as a tactile puzzle. It's actually created from five individual elements which can be fitted together or displayed individually to show its various forms.
Whatever you want it to be Niche is an object of beauty created by one of today's most in demand architects and designers.
