Zaha Hadid is an established name for discovering designs but her latest creation for Chanel can be seen as an icing on the cake. The Chanel fashionable Art urn was developed with a portable feature so that it can display work of work from one city to another. Offering an appeal of an alien spaceship, it sports exhibits resembling Yoko Ono (presenting an interactive Wish Tree), Michael Li, Loris Cecchini, and photographers Stephen Shore and Nobuyoshi Araki. Having debuted in Hong Kong, it gold sold off in Tokyo (where it is still open for devotees until 4 June).
Word is around that it would mark an entry in New York by October and is anticipated to hit London and Moscow in 2009, and Paris in 2010. Check out Chanels’ Mobile Art website here.
