An aristocratic aesthetics of living, created over time, with furnishings and accessories signed by international design stars.
Driade is the complex project of an aristocratic aesthetic of living. Within the company's product catalogue Antonia Astori's storage systems form a bond with the eclectic collection of finished furniture. The company was established in 1968 on the initiative of Enrico Astori, his sister Antonia and his wife Adelaide Acerbi. Over the years the array of poetics has turned Driade into an aesthetic experiment that is changing constantly. "Driade's philosophy of living is founded on the belief that eclecticism represents the new meaning of our era," says Enrico. Over the years the company's communication, overseen by Adelaide Acerbi, has involved some famous names in photography. In 1981 Driade won the Compasso d'Oro, Italy's good design award, for its well-coordinated image. Each of Driade's many souls experiences its own independent life depending on the chooser's sensibility and taste. In each of its three brands —"Driade," "Driade Kosmos" and "Driade Store"—“everybody finds a Driade that looks like them."
