ASTORI DE PONTI ASSOCIATI
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 Milan Polytechnic University and trained in an international context. His entry in AstoriDePontiAssociati has led their activity towards new important collaborations.
Among their most significant recent products, mention must be made of 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 shape and colour are the result of a long meditation deeply rooted in the idea of function first and foremost.
