Playing with lightness

ULTRALEGGERA is a manifesto chair. Its final form and properties, implied by monomateriality, are like a lens concentrating complex issues from the fields of ecology, technology and economics.

When Cassina began producing the Superleggera chair designed by Gio Ponti in 1957, experiments with strength and lightness of structure belonged primarily to the world of architecture. In their projects, such creators as Buckminster Fuller and Jean Prouvé raised the idea of ​​the primacy of construction quality over form. In 2019, Oskar Zięta decided to face the challenge of lightness again .in the design of a functional product. The result of his research is Ultraleggera, a chair that amazes with its featherweight and attracts with its charm

Sustainable monomaterial thinking

The combination of a huge dose of imagination with the original FiDU technology resulted in a project that is not only surprisingly light but above all forms an innovative response to the challenges of the modern world. It owes its low weight to the fact that it is made of only one material, aluminium. ULTRALEGGERA thus follows the philosophy of Monomaterial Thinking and is fully recyclable. At the same time, it meets the premises of the Circular Economy. Made of 100% aluminium, complete recovery of the aluminium is achieved thanks to the use of a single raw material alloy in the entire product. The frame, seat and backrest made of aluminium are joined with aluminium joints without any additional materials and without covering it with additional finishing layers.

Ultraleggera Family

The Ultraleggera family is a great representative of Monomaterial Thinking. Manufactured in aluminium, it is durable, fully recyclable, and ultralight. When all of those features are combined with functionality, we get the Ultraleggera family, with each of its members functioning as a certain definition of the object of the future. They manifest Zieta Studio’s values and the principles of the Circular Economy.
