The Plopp Stools are made through a complex and innovative technology called ‘free inner pressure deformation’ – a manufacturing process developed by Polish designer and engineer Oskar Zieta, whereby flat, welded steel sheets are industrially inflated. This new process allows for the creation of complex, lightweight and weight-bearing forms while using only a minimal amount of material. Using this technology a new piece of steel furniture is created which in its form refers to plastic furniture but with the solidity and wearing qualities of steel. In an era of increasing global warming it makes sense to create products that do not break the day after the expiration of the guarantee certificate. Let’s go back making things that last.
