The iconicB.zero1’s unmistakable symmetrical circular lines and the two intersecting circles bearing theBVLGARIlogo has been one of the house’s icons ever since its launch almost twenty years ago. Bearing a number of architectural elements inspired by Rome’s famousColiseum, there’s no better way to give theB.zero1an update better than the design legend herself – the late, great, Zaha Hadid.

Zaha Hadid, famous for her deconstructivism in modern architecture, evolved in her works over time. Starting with angular aggressive forms like the Vitra Fire Station, Hadid progressed toward works that epitomise fluidity and movement such as the Dongaemun Design Plaza (DDP) and the Heydar Aliyev Centre.

TheB.zero1, birthed in 1999, has also evolved over the years – and with this latest interpretation, the brand is exploring a certain beauty in deconstruction. Through Zaha Hadid’s expert vision of fluidity in deconstruction, together with Bulgari’s drive for inNovation and craftsmanship, this collaboration marks a new chapter for the timelessB.zero1.C

Carefully deconstructing the central band of theB.zero1,its structure and uniformity is transformed into undulating gold waves. Held together with the iconic intersecting circles engraved with theBVLGARIlogo, the birth of theDesign Legendwas born.
