It is done.
After the last modifications and a tough production phase the new Architonic Concept Space designed by Oskar Zieta (Zieta Prozessdesign) was presented at this year’s imm cologne for the first time.
The modular system, which consists of a number of identical and stackable geometrical spatial structures, is made up of inflated sections welded together robotically. A well-balanced equilibrium of traction and pressure forces gives the structures maximum stability. By arranging the assymatrical modules in different positions a space is created whose structural order seems to be unrepoducible but rhythmical at the same time.
Zieta’s so called FiDU (Freie InnenDruck Umformung) technology is in many respects an especially economical process. In contrast to injection moulding, hydroforming or extrusion, all of which require elaborate and costly machines and moulds, all that FiDU needs is a die plate and a robot welder.
This year’s Architonic Concept Space III provides Oskar Zieta and his team with a platform for implementing an architectural project with this new technology for the first time.
Thanks to our partner and sponsor Andreas Messerli Kommunikation im Raum (project management, exhibition building and logistics) for assembling the Architonic Concept Space III.
