Designed in 2004.
Driade has been making its mark on the landscape since 1968, remaining at the forefront of Italian design from its aesthetic workshop, dedicated to “the art of living.” Switch Modern brings you access to a unique selection of Driade products, each one made to be a work of art in its own right. New, forward-looking concepts are mixed with heritage pieces for indoor or outdoor use, in homes and commercial buildings.
Choose among modern chairs by the likes of Philippe Starck and other iconic names, or a sectional sofa by Ludovica and Roberto Palomba, outlined in a thin metal structure, its trim cushions seemingly suspended above ground. Tables and desks invite you to create inspired settings with Driade products like the edgy, Adelaide tabletop collection by Zie Dong. Survey our entire offering and begin your own journey into the art of living.
Antonia Astori (born 1940 in Mezlo, Italy) studied industrial and visual design at the Athenaeum in Lausanne, graduating in 1966. She founded Driade in 1968 with brother Enico and Adelaide Acerbi, designing the furniture for which she is now well–known. Some of her more prominent pieces include the Project Aforismi, San Souci Collection, Virginia Writing Desk, and Eileen Bookcase. Antonia Astori's designs are still manufactured by Driade. Her work has been featured at exhibitions and other events around the world, including Turin, Tokyo, and Verona.
