About FIDU
FIDU means inflating steel just like rubber toys!
With one exception – objects created this way are not necessarily toys.
Inflated steel sheets have a very high weight-capacity, so these funny looking shapes are indeed an innovative construction technology. Developed as a method of steel sheet stabilization, FIDU opens new possibilities of forming for the design objects and ultra-light constructions.

Every shape cut from steel sheet can be inflated into a 3d object. It means that the same technology can be applied to any complexity of form.
The contours of the metal sheets are cut using a laser, welded together by a robot and then inflated at high pressure to form a 3d object.
