"Polish designer Oskar Zieta has designed a metal stool called Plopp for Danish furniture brand Hay.
The stools are made from hydro-formed metal; two sheets of metal are welded together following the outline of the stool, which is then filled with fluid under pressure.
The legs of the stool are then bent into place, creating a form that Zieta likens to inflatable furniture.
"The result is a light construction which can be easily mass-customized at low production costs with well established techniques," says Zieta.
Idea: â€¨The idea was to produce a stable and convenient furniture out of thin metal sheets using the potential of hydro-formed metal surfaces.
This was achieved by placing welds along the outer contour line and the interior. The interior welds as well as the pressure of the poured in fluid applied limits and control to the formation of interior cushions, creating the final shape resembling the pattern on the BlowUp Furniture."
