Oskar Zieta
 
  • SCULPTURAL MIRRORS
  • Introduction

  • Bio

Polish artist Oskar Zieta discovered an innovative technology for treating stainless steel. Using this technology, he lays two wafer-thin, laser-cut sheets of stainless steel on top of each other and literally inflates them. This results in shiny, sculptural works of art reminiscent of organic forms. Through the thickness of the stainless steel and the pressure applied, the artist can determine what shape the interior will take, even after it has been welded shut.

The process, also called FIDU, is what Zieta uses to create his lightweight mirrors RONDO and TAFLA. Looking at them, viewers are instantly astonished: RONDO is reminiscent of a silvery doughnut, gracefully arching into three-dimensional space. TAFLA appears like an organically growing work of art, and its elegant appearance transforms any room. Depending on where you are standing in the room, the RONDO and TAFLA mirrors reflect differently – every step revealing a new dimension. Oskar Zieta’s creations inhabit the space somewhere between art and architecture, between sculptures and furnishings.

The artistic HOT PIN hangers are perfect DIY gifts for any occasion. Placed in the oven, the flat, welded sheet-metal object transforms into a three-dimensional home accessory. In a creative arrangement on the wall, HOT PINS also have a hypnotic effect – there are no limits to your imagination for hanging them!
Oskar Zieta was born in Zielona Góra, Poland. During his studies at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich, he developed the innovative FIDU process for inflating metal. Zieta’s sculptural artworks can be found in the collections of renowned museums such as MoMA, the Vitra Design Museum, and Centre Pomidou. The artist has won multiple awards including the Red Dot Design Award in 2008 and the Audi Mentor Award in 2011.
