Zaha Hadid gives her 2017 posthumous design swansong with the 2017 Brit Award statues

Internationally renown designer Dame Zaha Hadid posthumously graced the 2017 Brit Awards with her stunning take on the iconic Brit Award statue.

Held on 22nd February 2017 at the famous o2 Arena, the 37th annual Brit Awards hosted a multitude of music artists, producers and celebrities alike. Celebrating the accomplishments of both individuals and collectives in the music industry over the past year, the evening saw artists such as Adele and Little Mix claim their Zaha Hadid designed statue.

Fashioned just three months before her tragic passing, Dame Zaha Hadid’s statue reflected her belief in diversity – a somewhat controversial subject within the music industry over previous years.

Featuring five different statue silhouettes, her stunning collection collaborated to form a family of accolades. Winners received the same matt silver depiction of Britannia, whilst other members of the family were finished in a smooth matt white finish.

Hadid’s statue joins the likes of Philip Treacy, Vivienne Westwood and Damien Hirst in the Brit Awards’ Hall of Fame.
