The "Expansion" exhibition by Oskar Zieta during Warsaw Home 2018 delighted everyone. Original and fresh designs aroused great interest in people visiting trade fairs. The strength of form, colors and impact of the presented objects perfectly fit into the slogan of this year's trade fair "POWER".
The center of the exhibition was a wall made of architectural concrete, decorated with a composition of Tafla mirrors made in the original technology based on inflated metal forms. In front of the wall stood G-Table Ancient finished with a top from the ancient bog oak, a native variety of wood hidden on the bottoms of Polish rivers and lakes for thousands of years. Currently, it is mined and transformed into material used to create this phenomenal table top. The table base has been made in unique technology using thermally colored steel.
Thermal coloring is a rare technology used by Oskar Zieta. Deep and intriguing color was obtained thanks to the use of high temperature, bringing out the surprising beauty of metal without the use of chemical reagents or paints.
The same technology was used to prepare the base for the second G-Table named Cosmos presented at the exhibition, which was finished with the noble variant of uniquely textured black granite. A surprising combination of mirror polished stainless steel with a worktop covered with hand-crafted cowhide was presented in the form of bionic console.
An intriguing element of the exhibition was the premiere of the installation called Crystals, inspired by light refracted by diamonds and crystals. This geometric formation of mirrored wall objects focused the attention of both the form and the phenomenal effect of refraction at various angles.
Unusual use of copper greeted visitors at Zieta’s stand. Limited series of objects made of copper has been presented in cooperation with the European Copper Institute. Stools and mirrors made of inflatable copper were accompanied by modular mini-bookcase.
The visitors’ favourite was Rondo Gradient, a colorful mirror with unparalleled colors. Perfectly smooth surface of polished metal, covered with fanciful shades of green and blue gave new meaning to the term of mirrors.
