Bulgari partners with Zaha Hadid Architects to create the B.zero 1 ring

Last year, Bulagri chief executive Jean-Christophe Babin invited Zaha Hadid to reinvent the brand’s B.zero 1 collection. Now the work of the late great architect is here for us to admire.

Created to celebrate the new millennium and inspired by the Colosseum, the B.zero 1 collection has been reinvented several times since it was launched in 1999.

But Hadid took the line in a whole new direction. Her design combines “her unwavering optimism for the future and belief in the power of invention with concepts of fluidity,” Bulagri said in a press release. “Daring to innovate with materials and proportions, Hadid’s unrelenting experimentation never failed to capture the imagination.”

Her design unites two flat bands with the classic BVLGARI engraving of the original 1999 ring. The connect via undulating lines of gold that intersect to create a delicate three-dimensional filigree around its circumference.

No word on what the new line of rings cost, but what’s money anyway?
