Ultraleggera Chair by Zieta
“Ultraleggera” or the lightest chair ever… Signed by Zieta. This Ultraleggera chair is a tribute the the iconic Superleggera chair by the great Italian designer Gio Ponti.
Oskar Zieta decided to face the featherweight of classic concept by Gio Ponti called Superleggera. Zieta’s creation is Ultraleggera – the lightest chair in the world. Ponti’s project reached 1700 grams in weight while some prototypes by Oskar Zieta went down to 1600 grams.
Ultraleggera collection is based on Zieta Prozessdesign FiDU technology that uses air to shape objects. In comparison to other metal forming methods, FiDU uses less energy, less material and gen- erates less waste. How? Free forming does not require expensive molds or machine cutting. Moreover, pieces made with FiDU are empty inside what helps not only to save material but also to save energy used for delivery to customer.
Ultraleggera design fits perfectly the current trends and consumers’ expectations, especially in terms of environment friendly solutions. Pursuant to MMT idea (Mono Material Thinking), the chair is made of just one material – aluminum, what allows to recycle it entirely. Its aluminum frame, seat and back keep together with aluminum welds, just like in professional bicycle frame. This solution fulfills the criteria of reasonable resources management called Circular Economy. It as- sumes manufacturing products from materials that can be retrieved and reused.
