MILAN DESIGN WEEK 2019
„FURNITURE OF DISORDER”
Milan Design Week is the most important event in the calendar of the world of design. During this year’s edition of Salonedel Mobile fairs, Oskar Zieta and his studio will presentsurprising projects. These are objects that go beyond the framework of regular design, breakthe stereotypes of typical furniture and enter with controversial forms into the field of art.The new collection will be presented at the “Furniture of Disorder” exhibition at Salone del Mobile in Milan, hall 6, stand E33.
Nucleus – More than just a mirror
The heart of the exhibition will be the premiere of Oskar Zieta’s new artistic installation, the impressive multi-element NUCLEUS mirror. This object, exceeding archetype of a common mirror, has been made of several elements of polished stainless steel, covered with a special coating that creates a gradient composition of exceptional depth and unparalleled reflections on their surface. Soft transitions between emerald and sapphire shades provide the viewers intensive visual experiences. A change of point of view leads to a change in color perception.
This object is an absolute dominant and a central point of space. The monumental character, strength and energy dormant in the form arouses emotions and fills in the room.
New colors of Gradient collection
Milan Design Week will also hold a premiere of new coloristic line of Gradient collection. The new finish combines unique set of colors that will adorn RONDO Gradient. Surface of this round shaped mirror has been polished and coated in advanced technological coloring process. The new RONDO Gradient mirror will be composed together with monolithic G-CONSOLE in coating matching the shades of the wall.
Objects created in FiDU technology are characterized by extraordinary lightness and durability. This allowed for the creation of a chair prototype, falling into the category of ultralight objects. In the pursuit of perfection, Oskar Zieta created a prototype inspired by Gio Ponti 699 Superleggera’s famous chair – RABARBAR Superleggera.
Originally, RABARBAR chair was created as a dedicated object. Since then the project has evolved and became a symbol of one of the important features of FIDU technology – lightness and durability. A very light construction made of aluminum has been created with very high strength to weight ratio.
Diamond inspired mirrors
CRYSTALS is a series of mirrored objects combining geometric shapes with smooth, soft transitions of inflatable metal forms. Polished surfaces curve the light, creating a stunning game of reflections and shadows. New forms of the CRYSTALS mirrors will be presented as a multi-element wall constellation. Curved mirrored surfaces allow to get lost in reflections.
CRYSTALS table is a brand new concept and evolution of the diamond inspired series of objects. The inner part of the CRYSTALS table base, with its mirrored surfaces, creates a kaleidoscope, a curved reality. In this way, people looking into the object experience a colorful optical illusion. The clear table top will expose the shapes of parametrically designed base to present the purity of form.
TAFLA mirrors collection has been developed in many shapes. The new form presents geometric simplicity and respect for proportions. Tall and narrow shape allows implementing it into most demanding interiors and arranging both as single mirror or multi-element set, creating marvelous way of filling space. Impression on a steel surface does not reflect reality, it creates a new one.
FiDU technology brings out the true face of steel and creates objects of unique shapes. Collection name refers to the surface of the water that served as the original looking surface.
A look in the TAFLA is like a journey into the past while encountering solutions of the future. Design and art find a common denominator with technology here.
Hidden metal beauty
Thermal coloring is a rarely used technology. Deep and intriguing color is obtained by application of high temperature. Depending on the type of metal, pressure and gas composition used for heating, the surface can get a subtle Flamed Gold color or a deep dark shade of Cosmic Blue.
“Process designing” approach allows to extract from the material not only strength and form, but also the surprising beauty of the metal obtained without the use of chemical reagents or paints. This unique approach makes the whole process of creating objects radically ecological. From a material and energy-saving production process, through low amount of fully recyclable waste to non-polluting dying processes.
G-TABLE Ancient table in Cosmic Blue presented at the exhibition will be crowned with a top made of bog oak. This unique and native variety of wood was hidden at the bottom of Polish rivers and lakes for thousands of years. Now it is mined and transformed by LUPUS 73 into a unique material that will be the culmination of the presented table.
The end of mass production. It’s time for mass customization
Since creation of first objects in FiDU technology, Zieta uses architectural soft ware design tools to generate optimal forms of the desired objects. This is how G-TABLE is born, a series of bionically shaped objects adapted to individual needs and requirements of the client. Each table is “tailor-made” and created together with the user to fit the destinant space and meet the most demanding interiors.
G-TABLE base consists of parabolic forms. Made in FiDU technology, it brings to mind vines or tree roots. Nature symbolizes constant variability and the resulting harmony. The diverse structure of G-TABLE refers to both natural forms and processes.
More events during Milan Design Week
For the upcoming Milan Design Week 2019, Oskar Zieta will create a pop up installation for CHROMATIC exhibition by JUNG. By combining architecture, lights and Zieta’s mirrors they will create an artistic spatial experiment in the rooms of a ballet school located in the heart of the Brera design district.
Works by Oskar Zieta will be presented also at a stand of famous Italian furniture manufacturer Cierre Inbotitti, that will add objects like RONDO Gradient mirror and CRYSTALS mirrors to their exhibition at Salone del Mobile – hall 7, stand H24H30.
ZIETA objects look great in the company of other radical materials and delicate matter. The highest quality carpets by JAN KATH will add a touch of softness. Together with the finest fabrics by RIDEX, they will create a space that, thanks to the delicateness and lightness of fabrics, will ensure the appropriate strength of the objects presented. BARLINEK company will cover the floor with oak wood, creating a solid foundation for the exhibition. The style and elegance of natural wood allow to emphasize their beauty and the strength of exhibited objects. ES-SYSTEM will take care of perfect highlighting of the exhibits
Join us during Milan Design Week and let yourself be surprised by the collection that will be presented at the “Furniture of Disorder” exhibition at Salone del Mobile in Milan, hall 6, stand E33!
