The collection of wallpapers created by the famous Iraqi-British architect Zaha Hadid in 2015, and then made and distributed by the German company Marburg the following year, reveals innovative possibilities for a traditional wall covering. It is created using advanced techniques and limited to a very small edition. Zaha Hadid transposed her aerodynamic designs by covering walls with coloured organic shapes.
