It is not new that Oskar Zięta is a man of many faces. Design and new technologies are areas that he delves into with extreme accuracy and enthusiasm. On the other hand, very few know that he is often torn by artistic passions that push him to create sophisticated sculptures that are often surprising, technological stories. Ideas that flourish in his head are often derived directly from nature. Wir, Nawa or Seahorse are just some of the examples that testify to Oskar Zięta's innovative approach to his own craftsmanship. He successfully created a bionic-artistic mixture that can captivate contemporary art consumers and intrigue successful engineers. He has created a style ahead of the era in which we live. He creates with respect for ecology, using the latest trends in science and technology. He does not lack a vision, undying ambition and a desire to change the world for the better.
