The latest edition of iSaloni, Milan’s International Furniture Exhibition, was used as a springboard to promote Vitae, a collection by Noken – a brand which forms part of the Porcelanosa Group, signed by Zaha Hadid Design. Despite its recent emergence, Noken’s new collection of bathroom furnishings has had ample time to earn its first international accolade, the I-Novo Award presented by the platform Archiexpo.

Vitae, modelled on the natural movement of water, immediately evokes the most recognizable qualities of projects developed by the studio of the Iraqi-born British architect Zaha Hadid, winner of the Pritzker Prize who died last March – fluid lines and a notable penchant for curves. An entirely unique design which stamps the harmonious combination of parts with the unmistakable seal of Hadid.
