The Vitae Collection, a new bathroom concept by Zaha Hadid Design for Noken, has been informed by Hadid’s fluid architectural language; integrating each piece within the overall ensemble. Shaped by functional and ergonomic considerations, the design is also dependent on the overriding formal language of fluidity.

Vitae appears as an integral bathroom collection meant to arise as the new bathroom design. Noken and Zaha Hadid Design have come to a revolutionary notion for the bathroom. This new series features astounding elements that remind us of the spectacular designs created by Zaha Hadid. Fluid lines that evoke water flow are the leitmotif of this outstanding collection. For this reason it has been named Vitae (“life” in latin), because in water is where all sort of life begins.
