Koniczyna

KONICZYNA

Koniczyna is an ultralight construction made up of three FiDU steel arches. Put together they create the effect of naturally growing bionic sculpture. Koniczyna’s polished surface constantly reflects the surroundings and gives an amazing game of lights, therefore its appearance changes throughout the day.

Koniczyna is a naturally growing sculpture in the art focused development.

Echo Investment, while searching for symbol of their development philosophy, got into cooperation with Oskar Zięta. The idea was to create a sculpture that merges the future, nature and technology, a sculpture that would bring added value and uniqueness to their new building investment.

Sculpture stands in front of the entrance to West Link office complex, three-leafed form of Clover made in unique FiDU technology is a great symbol for those who focus more on hard work than on sheer blind luck.  

Symbol of nature, growing, also symbol of hard work, like startups and tech companies inside buildings.

Operating on the intersections of art, design and science, Oskar Zięta reaches beyond the traditional definition of an artist. During his sculpting process, the form is created with the use of digital manipulations. The initial vision of the construction of the sculpture was translated to digital language.

In his work, Oskar Zieta draws inspiration from nature and the forms it creates. Developed by evolution throughout thousands of years, nature has created many fantastic forms that are perfect combination of aesthetics and design solutions. Up to now their recreation was very difficult, however with the use of contemporary design tools and original FiDU technology, Oskar Zieta goes beyond the framework of classic artist, becoming an art innovator.

Parametric design

The organic shapes are the result of parametric design. This innovative domain operating in architecture, engineering and city planning relies on software which allows to generate blocks on the basis of combined input of parameters. Forms are generated during the process of computer shaping, which can surprise the creator of the sculpture himself. Thanks to the initial parameters, the final shapes fulfill practical goals, such as optimal size, weight, adaptation to the environment.

Production

Production of Koniczyna sculpture was very challenging. This seemingly simple form consists of elements twisting 90 degrees around their axis. Something seemingly easily for nature to create is difficult to recreate in one form in FiDU, and impossible in any other. It was necessary to combine the work of automated production robots with human labor. As a result, a bionic form with a unique shape was created.

The weight of the ultralight construction was possible thanks to FiDU – the innovative technology invented by Oskar Zięta. It allows to distort the shapes of steel elements welded together. Thanks to “inflating” it with compressed air, the metal forms become durable and stable, maintaining its lightness at the same time.

Installation

During their journey from the factory to the final destination, the profiles were transported in a compact position, thanks to their design, allowing to stack of elements. The optimized form, ultra-light weight and experience of Zieta Prozessdesign in the installation of large-scale spatial objects, allowed to shorten the assembly process to merely a few hours.

Inspired by nature, technologically advanced art

Koniczyna sculpture is a new hand in developer architecture. It became a symbol of development, a showcase that changed the character of the building and created a cohesive space conducive to business.
