Design Porn: Air-Blown Furniture

Oskar Zieta‘s groundbreaking inflatable furniture, which is made by industrially blowing air into laser-cut sheets of welded steel, is making its American debut in the exhibition Poetic License at Moss in New York. The Polish designer and engineer’s innovative production concept offers endless possibilities for lightweight, funky furniture and objects, as witnessed by some of the experimental designs on the company’s website.

Zieta’s hottest piece, the Plopp Stool, is featured at Moss in a variety of sizes and colors, including red, blue, green, yellow, black, white, and polished steel, as well as a limited edition in a chic copper finish. Two more limited editions round out Moss’s stock of Zieta’s innovative designs: the Chippensteel chair — a riff on the venerable Chippendale chair — in polished steel and copper.
