in continuation of his work with inflatable steel, polish designer oscar zieta showcased his latest collection ‘zieta limited ‘ at the karena schuessler gallery during DMY international design festival berlin 2010. ‘zieta limited’ is a section of zieta prozessdesign’s products made out of inox steel, brass, copper or coated with teflon.

zieta initially started his work with a curiosity over whether steel could be inflated. through his research work,  he began working with FIDU technology, which is a high pressure interior conversion process that allows him to make heavy steel material appear completely light.  in the past, zieta has developed chairs, benches and other seating furniture out of steel, which ends up resembling colored balloons.

  • Tinus. I totally agree.

  • I really like what oskar zieta does and I love the technique of FIDU.
    But I have to say that I find the original Plopp-stool still his best design. It just fits.
    With the other designs e.g. chair and table it becomes too much. It’s time to think bigger with this idea, not just furniture, but also architecture and engineering.
