BOLID, designed by Oskar Zieta and available at Zieta Studio, is a unique mirrored object and a sculpture: a decorative version of the streamlined longboard’s form, an alternative “mean of transport” in the contemporary urban landscape that will fit a modern interior: whether a minimalist apartment or an extravagant loft. It will take you straight to the border between art and design.

BOLID was created from polished steel using FiDU – originally for the Pirelli flagship store in Milan. The mirror in the shape of a longboard aimed to meet Pirelli´s expectations of an inspirational product made in highly innovative technology. It accompanied and completed the display incarnating Pirelli’s approach to design.

A MIRROR, A SCULPTURE
The FiDU BOLID board is an aesthetic object, an artistic variation of the shape known widely by skaters. Its functional form serves as a point of departure for a purely decorative objective – hang it on or lean it by the wall and discover the reflective power of polished steel.
The minimalistic and pure form makes it a perfect fit for the home of a skating fan or for any modern elegant ambience.

BOLID. AN ORGANIC-SHAPED MIRROR
The dynamic shape of a wooden board, adjusted to the laws of aerodynamics, has been translated by Zieta Studio to steel, a material widely explored by Oskar Zieta in his cutting-edge collection of mirrors, chairs and tables.
It turns out the longboard’s strong shape inflated in steel gains a gentle, organic aspect. Thus, the oval of the sculpture-mirror resembles a living organism, a stem cell in the macroscale.

Like all objects made with FiDU, the BOLID mirror also has its own, particular surface’s deformations caused by the compressed air inflated into a two-dimensional form in order to give it volume. The front and back are even, while the edges are characterized by distinctive folds and creases that make every BOLID a unique work of art.
