Initiated by the American Hardwood Export Council and Benchmark Furniture, The Wish List brings together a stellar list of architects and designers for a unique collaborative project. The project invited designers and studios to use American hardwood to create an object for an established figure in the architecture and design industry. Zaha Hadid’s brief was simple and open: to create some form of tableware made from wood. So she teamed up with Gareth Neal to craft two sculptural oak vases.

The water carafe idea emerged from considering the liquid nature of Zaha Hadid’s work, but juxtaposing it with a functional element to contain water within. Through using the traditional vessel form as a starting point and subverting its appearance to dramatic extremes, mimicking traditional carving technique Gareth Neal hopes the pieces will embed the design with a sense of the handmade through the arm of a robot, questioning the viewer’s perceptions of craft and the handmade.
