Oskar Zięta’s interdisciplinary explorations of material combine engineering, art, technology, and design. Material research takes the form of purely artistic or functional objects, and for DESA Home Today it has gained a new interpretive layer: the colour Electric Magenta.

“The colour of the object itself is different in various interiors and under different lighting. The mirror reflects the space, and the colour becomes a filter. It’s like wearing magenta glasses.”
~ Oskar Zięta for DESA Home ~


This year’s proposal by Oskar Zięta for DESA Home Today is a steel interpretation of the Viva Magenta colour by the Pantone Institute. Experiments with natural pigments applied to polished surfaces of Zieta Studio’s metal objects electrifyingly manifest the depth of magenta.


In a unique rendition of Electric Magenta, a colour available exclusively on the DESA Home platform or in-store, we present two flagship objects from Zieta Studio: the metal mirror RONDO and the iconic PLOPP stool. 

PLOPP, the “Polish Air-Pumped Folk Object,” is a winner of the prestigious Red Dot Award. It is recognized for its original, toy-like form, which perfectly manifests Zieta’s proprietary technology of deforming steel with internal pressure. PLOPP is a sustainable, monomaterial object that is incredibly durable. Its unassuming form can support over two tonnes.

The metal mirror RONDO is a fascinating story of colour and reflections. Oskar Zięta enjoys debuting in this format, as we had the opportunity to admire during this year’s edition of Salone del Mobile in Milan, where the Helix Nebula triptych was presented for the first time. These shades expanded the Transitions Collection, which cosmically narrates gradient transitions.
Electric Magenta objects are a metallic interpretation of a colour that falls exactly halfway between red and blue on the RGB and CMY colour models. Initially, the French chemist François-Emmanuel Verguin named this patented aniline dye “fuchsine.” However, the colour was renamed to commemorate the Italo-French victory at the Battle of Magenta in 1859. Almost simultaneously, in 1860, an identical colour called “magenta” was created by two British chemists, Edward Chambers Nicholson and George Maule.

The DESA Home Today project focuses on the essence of sustainable design and art. For 20 years, Oskar Zięta has created objects now referred to as circular products. They are environment-friendly, recyclable, and above all, durable, making them long-lasting. Furthermore, FiDU technology not only optimizes the consumption of material and energy, but also reduces virtual space.
The collections for DESA Home tell a cohesive narrative of natural inspirations, closeness, and the search for individual forms of expression in functional objects. This is particularly important in the fast-paced world of mass production and repeatability. The project is “a tribute to natural, organic, and sustainable materials. It is care for the smallest detail.”
