Zieta' Plopp collection has a combined essence of elegance and playfulness. The Plopp Collection includes stools with inflated pillars. A whimsical concept, these stools are a scene out of a storybook illustration, making them a delight for the eyes. The stools serve as an intriguing artsy object, and they are also sturdy enough for use.
All the objects By Zieta are the result of experiments of shaping steel. The most successful experiment involved shaping steel with compressed air. This technique introduced FIDU technology, which is used in constructing all of Zieta's collection.
FIDU technology combines two ultra-thin sheets to weld them together around the edges. The edges are inflated under the high pressure to form three dimensions. Objects that use FIDU technology are light-weight yet durable. Most of the stools have a glossy metallic sheen to add a retro-future aesthetic.
The different stool designs in the Plopp collection are available in different colors. The stools are available in black, red, gray, silver, gold, navy blue, and rose gold to accentuate different spaces based on existing color schemes.
