Antonia Astori e Nicola De Ponti

    The studio AstoriDePontiAssociati is active in the areas of architecture, design, retail, interiors and exhibitions. The thirty years of experience accrued by Antonia Astori in her relations with leading Italian design companies, combined with the freshness of the approach to projects of Nicola De Ponti, are the linchpin of a broader, more composite professionalism that leads to renewal and openness towards the new generations.

    After her studies in industrial and visual design at the Athenaeum in Lausanne, Antonia Astori immediately associated her name with Driade. Nicola De Ponti studied architecture at the Polytechnic University of Milan and trained in an international context. His entry in AstoriDePontiAssociati has led their activity towards new important collaborations.

    Among their most significant recent products we can recall the “Milano” radiator for Tubes (2006 - selection by the ADI Design Index 2008), the “Plateau” lamp for OLuce (2009 – selection by the ADI Design Index 2010) , the “Edipo” bookcase for Driade (2010) and the “Twin box” bookcase for Valsecchi 1918 (2012 - selection by the ADI Design Index 2013). The AstoriDePontiAssociati brand designs houses, furniture and spaces that are strong and rigorous, in which form and colour are the result of a long meditation that has its roots in the idea of the function.
