the fidu bench by oskar zieta has been constructed with metal sheets, taking advantage of CNC production and fidu technology (free inside pressure forming). the result is a lightweight construction designed for semi public and private space. the fidu manufacturing technique allows industrial manufacturing with an individual, custom made result. structural elements can be manufactured within a range of 400 up to 3000mm.

the bench was on display as part of the allstars exhibition at the DMY berlin design festival.
