At libation-imbibing level, Plopp Bar Stool looks playfully off-kilter even before the cocktails kick in. Zieta's signature seating scales up to bar height and adds a handy footrest ring at the bottom. Each Plopp is unique—shaped with the innovative FIDU method of welding 2 ultra-thin steel sheets together and inflating with high pressure for every 3D crumple and curve. Surprisingly lightweight yet sturdy, the seating is available in a number of eye-catching finishes.

  • 29.5" h x 13.75" dia (75x35cm)
  • Steel, inox


“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.”
