DESCRIPTION

With a lower seat and the relaxing incline of its backrest, Zieta extends its J-Chair offerings with a standout lounge version. Originally created for the Museum Jerke, a contemporary art showplace in the west German city of Recklinghausen, the chair references the museum's architectural motif. Divided into sections, the building's walls give the impression of cuts in the facade. Similarly, the lounge seating's surface has deep decorative grooves in the otherwise liquid-smooth surface.

ABOUT THE DESIGNER: OSKAR ZIETA

OSKAR ZIETA

“To be creative yourself was most vital,” says designer Oskar Zieta of growing up in the waning days of communism in his native Poland. With no access to products from Western Europe or the U.S. and few museums or galleries to explore, he leaned hard on his imagination. All the more reason to wonder, then, at his fantastical balloon-like steel furniture. The initial Plopp Stool was a sensation, garnering the Red Dot Award and recognition from the Pompidou Centre in Paris as one of the 12 chairs to have changed modern design. Made from welded sheets of steel, Plopp was inflated using high-pressure air with an innovative process called FiDU.

In addition to lecturing, maintaining his design studio and running a production company in his hometown of Zielona Góra, he continues to explore the realm of his own imagination. "My dream project is constructions in space,” Oskar says. “FiDU's ultra-lightness and possibilities of volumetric expansion could be crucial.”
