Didymos Oval Table with White Marble Top by Antonia Astori for Driade

About

On its fiftieth anniversary, Driade modifies the design of an iconic table, for which, in its original version, Antonia Astoria had balanced the elegant minimalism of the top with a sculptural base made of a material just as malleable as it was contemporary. The circular top and a new size allow Didymos to be used in different ways, offering new planning options. Antonia Astori attended then the Athenaeum in Lausanne where she graduated in 1966 in Industrial and Visual Design; in 1968, with his brother Enico and Adelaide Acerbi she founded Driade. Antonia Astori for Driade, in addition to designing furniture, plays the role of projectile coordinator, getting to build a unique network of furniture design, exhibitions and shops. She designed the forerunner containment systems Oikos I (1972), Oikos II (1980) and Kaos (1986). To those systems, Antonia Astori combines the design of individual pieces in which, however, the sense of living is always carefully considered. In this spirit were born, we could say as "chamber architectures", first the project Aforismi (1984), then the San Souci collection (1990) and finally, in 2006, Virginia writing desk and Eileen bookcase. In parallel to her designer main activity, Antonia Astori takes care also of interior projects, designing houses that organization and rationality, pursued to the utmost, have made long-lasting and absolutely free of stylistic references to the dominant mannerism. The role of Antonia Astori on national and international scene, even though characterized by a very discrete character, is completed by her presence at major events, from an initial, but unforgotten, Eurodomus in Turin in 1971, under the aegis of Gio Ponti, to the exhibition "Design Donne" of 1985 in Tokyo, and by numerous appearances at the Triennale as well as in Verona at "Abitare il tempo".
