Tayga Design's story

Tayga Design's story

Tayga Studio is Alexander and Ekaterina Chubar. The emergence of the studio in 2013. We design and create collections of lamps and other items for residential interiors. Our subjects are based on the search for new forms, materials, functions and meanings. We use different materials and techniques to create our objects. And this list is constantly growing. At the moment, we are actively developing 3 areas: Ceramics, recycled paper and polymers. And in each direction, we implement many models that allow us to solve various interior tasks. I would like to note that we often use manual labor in production. This gives uniqueness and warmth. But we are no strangers to progress and are actively looking towards modern technologies. The solutions we have found in the production technology and work with the form give uniqueness to our objects. We pay special attention to the shape of the object; there is a certain feature that is characteristic exclusively of our objects: all the lines of the form tend to the classical ideal (to the ideal sphere, cone, cylinder). It's like a little kid who decided to sculpt the perfect jug and is happy with his work. In all our objects there are delicate flaws and small imperfections, which give them a special charm. They want to be considered. We like that they create a dialogue not only in the interior but also with a person. Approaches to creating objects vary from subject to subject. Something is born in the head, something in the experimental process. The rolling stone gathers no moss. It's the same design - you need to be in the flow. We make available 3D models of our objects. And our talented friends shoot videos that reveal their character. We often receive requests from interior designers; we try to help them solve problems and at the same time create unique items.

OSKAR ZIĘTA:Architect Process Designer Artist

OSKAR ZIĘTA:Architect Process Designer Artist

Oskar Zięta is an artist fascinated with the formal properties of metals, which he transforms into sculptures that play with the senses, often intimidate with their scale and cross the border between what is possible and what is only imagined. He uses his original method of metal forming in his works, which gives him endless possibilities of manipulating the material while not depriving it of authenticity and craftsmanship naturality.

Zięta creates both sculptures based on mathematical precision, as well as organic objects that question Euclidean geometry. His projects are the result of a close relationship between man and the material, a practice already exercised by his father Jan and grandfather Bolesław. While they forged steel with the help of their own hands and heavy tools, Oskar Zięta in his work uses more sophisticated machining methods. He is a 4.0 blacksmith who carves with data, which he materializes in the form of sculptures – that give the impression of being subtly shaped by natural forces. They contain the truth about the material from which they are made – Zięta deforms and stabilizes metal with internal pressure on the basis of meticulously collected information about it. How will it behave under the influence of a certain force? How will a polished surface reflect its surroundings? How will the context influence the reception of a given form? These are the questions that Zięta faces during the creative process based on the idea of ​​a controlled loss of control. At the same time, he leaves the material a considerable margin of freedom, thanks to which he enters into a dialogue with it both in the virtual and real-world – transforming bits into atoms and these again into bit representations. Thanks to this cooperation with the material, his objects are characterized by a dose of precisely planned poetics. Born in 1975, Oskar Zięta is an architect, artist and process designer and the CEO of Zieta Studio. He holds a doctorate from the Eidgenössische

Zieta  Studio's History

Zieta Studio's History

Zieta Studio was established in 2010 by Oskar Zięta. It was also the year when he introduced his first object to the market. It was the PLOPP stool that had already been awarded the Red Dot Design Award 2008, the German Design Council Award 2008 and the Forum AID Award 2009.

The history of the company begins earlier though. From 2003 Oskar Zieta worked as a research associate and a teaching assistant as the chair of CAAD at the ETH in Zurich where he wrote his doctoral thesis under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Ludger Hovestadt. The main focus of his thesis was the input of computer-controlled machines in the processing of metal sheets in architecture and design.

During his research at the ETH, Zieta developed different methods of enhancing the efficiency of technology for steel design, architecture and construction. The main topic was the use of steel sheets as a construction element – cheap, easy to shape and efficient. The problem with steel sheets is stability – the work was focused on how to reach the desired stability of steel sheets to be able to use them as construction elements. Many different technologies were developed – among others, FIDU technology.
During the first years of operating Zieta Collection was gradually created – it included furniture and accessories designed by Oskar to the date: the standard, mini and kitchen PLOPP (2006- 2009), Chippensteel 0.5 (2009), Chippensteel 1.0 limited edition (2006), RONDO mirror (2009), PIN and KAMM hangers (2009), RONDEL (2009).

Later on, other collections followed: Copper, Heat, Gradient and Transitions Collections.

Wall panels for the kitchen: unaffordable luxury or perfect finishing?

The choice of wall decoration for a kitchen where we do some cooking and have our meals should be based not only on visual appeal but on the functional characteristics of the finish. Modern wall panels for the kitchen are one of the most successful cladding options, which harmoniously combine aesthetic beauty and impeccable functionality.

Advantages of gypsum wall panels

Gypsum 3D panels combine all the advantages of high-quality interior decor. Made in various designs, they radically transform the living space and easily mask minor construction defects, hide the wires running along the walls and make the home environment more well-maintained. Let’s list the main benefits of gypsum wall panels: Environmental stability - the composition of the mineral includes only harmless components that do not cause allergies and do not emit toxic substances into the atmosphere. Fire safety - gypsum coating doesn’t burn or melt, tolerates high temperatures well, and in case of fire, prevents it from spreading. Additional soundproofing - gypsum absorbs sound waves, thereby protecting from street hubbub or overly expressive neighbors. Easy installation - most often, wall-mounted modules are produced in a large format, which, combined with low weight, highly facilitates their installation. Do not forget that gypsum is a natural material that allows air to pass through. Accordingly, it ensures normal thermoregulation and an optimal microclimate without the “greenhouse effect.” Is it possible to place wall panels in the kitchen? At first glance, a relief wall may seem very laborious to maintain, especially in the kitchen. High humidity, splashes of fat, and odors accompanying cooking processes may harm the lining appearance and quickly make it unusable. To prevent this from
