Chairs, seatings and stools created by Zieta Studio are an effect of constant experimentation with the qualities of steel and its possible metamorphosis using FiDU technology.
Zieta chairs are both functional and formally groundbreaking. They bring unusual aesthetics to the world of design, breaking the established rules and limits of creativity.
The classic example is the iconic, sculpture-like PLOPP stool – the object that inaugurated the collection of Zieta chairs. It incarnates the main idea behind all chairs and seatings designed by Oskar Zięta. PLOPP stool is a mixture of artistry with the innovative technology that results in the creation of advanced, unique and up-to-date products.
