You are cordially invited to a meeting with Oskar Zięta – an architect, designer, and artist – the author of innovative and iconic utility objects, small-scale architecture, and spatial forms. The meeting will feature surprises and special guests, and the backdrop for our event will be a series of sculptures inspired by the form of a backyard metal rug-beating frame (trzepak), created by Zięta in the Sculpture Garden Raster. The author himself will talk about the behind-the-scenes of creating these works and reveal some of his workshop secrets.
Zięta has created not just a globally hailed design brand and identity, but also his own form, recognizable at first glance, a kind of creative perpetuum mobile. Intriguingly, he brings together two distinct disciplines—design and art—reintroducing to art qualities that had been abandoned: technological innovation, a deep understanding of materials, and an unrestrained formal mannerism.
