Oskar Zieta graduated in Architecture from the University of Technnology in Szczecin (Poland) in July 2000. After completing his studies he participated in the scholarship program in Computer Aided Architectural Design (CAAD) at the ETH in Zurich (Switzerland). There Oskar expanded his proficiencies in computer based architectural design and controlled production technologies.
During his research at the ETH, he developed different methods of enhancing efficiency of technology for steel design, architecture and construction. Among others, the FIDU technology was developed (Freie-Innen-Druck-Umformung) – Internal Pressure Forming. FIDU implies inflating two steel sheets welded around their edges into a 3D object. It takes only two thin steel sheets to create a complicated and very durable 3D object from steel in FIDU.
In 2008, Oskar Zieta introduced to the market his PLOPP stool as well as a limited edition of the chair Chippensteel and in 2009, he developed the whole Zieta collection.
