at the dmy youngsters
oskar zieta is from poland. first he studied architecture at the university of technology in szczecin, poland and than he came to the faculty of computer-aided architectural design (caad) at the eth zuerich, switzerland where he invented a striking production process.
the young designer calls his invention ‘fidu (freie Innen druck umformung/free inner pressure deformation) technology’. 2 sheets of watertight metal are welded together following the outline of the product (stool, chair, bench…), which is then filled water respectively air pressure, applied from the inside.
so, oskar works as a research associate and teaching assistant at the eth zurich since then. In his younger years he made the jump from architect to designer. this break through came with his idea of mass production. he should give himself a pat on the back.
