The Mercuric Tables by Zaha Hadid at the auction for the new Design Museum of London

Italian stone company Citco provided the Zaha Hadid Foundation with a set of Mercuric Tables in white Covelano marble, designed by Zaha Hadid in 2013, for an auction to benefit the new Design Museum of London.

Thanks to its collaboration with Zaha Hadid, which began in 2012, the company has been able to produce creations, the result of a fascinating fusion of invention and expression.

The Mercuric Tables are objects with an organic form that seem to have been shaped in clay, sinuous and polished like stones in rivers or on the seashore.

The new Design Museum, slated to open to the public on 24 November 2016, will be one of the most important facilities for contemporary design and architecture, a creative centre with a focus on nurturing innovation while supporting the next generation of design talent.
