Chippensteel 0.5

May 17th, 2010

The Chippensteel 0.5 is a chair designed by Oskar Zieta. This chair is made with exactly the same production technique called FiDU as his stool Plopp. FiDU is an abbreviation for German “FreieInnenDruckUmformung” – the Internal Pressure Forming. It means that two shapes cut from steel sheets are welded around their edges and inflated into a 3d object under high pressure. I really like the simplicity of this technique and Oskar seems to push its boundaries to the limit.

Tour de Force

Steve Jobs called the unibody of the new MacBook and MacBook Pro a Tour de Force. This part is milled from a solid piece of aluminium. I don’t know, it’s not like they have reinvented the wheel or so. But the new notebooks do look very lush. Me want.

Steel Stools by Jon HarrisonSteel Stools by Jon Harrison. They were created with the aim of holding the weight of an adult with the thinnest section of steel possible. The material for the seat was taken from the waste of the bottom rail.

Pieces by Daniel Enoksson.

My starting point in this project was to create a contrast between different colours and different materials. I wanted them to look like they where characters and at the same time would work with in a group. I used pine, MDF and steel to create a contrast in the composition between the pieces.

DMY Youngsters 2008 – Plopp

May 22nd, 2008

Plopp is a stool designed by Oskar Zieta. Indeed it looks like a blow-up stool, but it isn’t, it is actually made with thin metal sheets. The production techniques are the interesting part: cut with a CNC machine, welded together and then hydro formed. The result is really light structure. Every stool is unique, there is no control over the dents during the hydro forming.
