Mirrors by Zieta Studio

A new dimension of steel

Mirrors designed by Oskar Zięta and manufactured by Zieta Studio are not just objects that reflect the reality and adorn the interior amplifying it optically. Such objects as OKO, RONDO, TAFLA or SONAR are tridimensional mirrored sculptures made of stainless steel polished to a high gloss.

 

Thanks to their manufacturing process with the FiDU technology of inflating metal with air, they are sculpture-like mirrors and mirror-like sculptures at the same time. They can be hung on a wall as single objects of art and arranged into compositions that will fit a given space. TAFLA mirrors work perfectly in such personalized wall installations. Small objects such as PIN and KAMYKI will also make a statement in multiple sets.

Mirrors by Zieta Studio cross the border between art and technology and reflect Oskar Zięta’s research on the physical qualities of steel. Their uneven surfaces, with artistic deformations suggesting softness, play with the sense of eyesight and force us to see the reality in a different way. Especially the colours that Zieta Studio applies to the shiny metal surfaces make them truly magical objects of desire.

Mirrors in art & design

“If art reflects life, it does so with special mirrors” 

Bertolt Brecht

Mirrors’ reflective nature make them perfect objects to be used in interior design to create an illusion of space or to simply amplify the apparent size of a room. They come in a variety of forms, materials and shapes.

 

Often, they are also a medium of art in the works of contemporary artists such as Doug Aitken, Anish Kapoor, Mathias Kiss, Jeppe Hein or Alicja Kwade. But Oskar Zięta, while designing his mirrors, focuses on the formal qualities rather than on the medium itself. For him, the steel deformations are what constitute the very nature of his small decorative objects. Their aesthetics and connotations they produce are an artistic effect of the experimental manufacturing process.

Zieta mirrors drawing from history

Zieta Studio, with their FiDU mirrors made of steel, draws from the historical context. In the ancient era, all mirrors were made of polished metal such as bronze, lead or silver. They were also the most popular through most of the Middle Ages, even though the Romans discovered the technology of producing glass mirrors already in the 1st century AD. It was not until the 13th century that the technique of creating glass mirrors returned to Europe.

Steel mirrors sculpted with air

Oskar Zięta looks back to the past and, inspired by the traditional forms and methods of steelwork, uses the advanced technology of FiDU to design otherworldly objects that cross the border between pure decoration and functional object.

As FiDU method is based on transforming a 2D sheet of metal into a 3D object with pressurized air, the metal mirrors created by Zieta Studio not only resemble bionic air-inflated balloonesque artworks but are also light and extremely durable objects. In their charming shapes, they hide a cutting-edge approach to forming metal – in a sustainable way that is so desired in the contemporary world. Moreover, they are not just mirrors, but collectable objects made to last for generations.

RONDO – a unique round mirror for the wall

RONDO Mirror is made of high-gloss polished stainless steel. Its simple form resembling a round totem is the result of experiments with the material and its properties. It reflects light and, thanks to its uneven structure, gently deforms the surrounding space. 

 

It is a functional and artistic object at the same time – a three-dimensional mirror-sculpture, in which reality itself produces painterly reflections.

TAFLA Mirrors Modular Series

Reflective wall sculptures

TAFLA Mirrors is a series of geometric mirrors of organic shapes with different dimensions. Their bionic shapes were inspired by the forms naturally occurring in the environment such as waterdrops, stones, pieces and shards of rock. They can be arranged in multiple sets that will give another dimension to an interior and will create a unique story on the wall. 

 

The series is characterized by the unique forms of the mirrors – from bionic streamlined shapes to irregularly geometric ones. The free deformation process provides them with an extravagant elegance that reveals the true nature of metal.

 

Moreover, TAFLA Mirrors from the Gradient and Heat Collection own their artistic bold uniqueness to experiments with colours – with multiple layers of lacquer or with the technique of thermocolourization.

Beauty on the wall – OKO Mirror

Despite its contemporary vibe, OKO is just like the mirrors from the past – it is made of metal. FiDU technology brings it to another level and reveals the true face of steel. 

 

It is one of the most perfect and simplest objects from Zieta’s mirrors collection. It has an ideally round, lustrous surface, which delicately reflects and diffuses light interacting with other objects and creating artistic effects in the interior. Hung on a wall, it opens a new dimension of what is visible.

An artistic screen-mirror – SONAR

SONAR is an object that has been designed as a combination of a screen, a partition wall and a standing mirror. It is a freestanding form made of three panels whose position can be interchangeable. Thanks to its reflective surface, SONAR divides the space without making it smaller – on the contrary.
