Gibraltar Furniture is proud to announce that it has added Driade to our collection of world class international furniture brands.

Driade was born in ’68, some decades ago, in the same period as the trends that would have characterized the twentieth century: both the rigor of geometric and rational design and , on the other hand, the recovery of pop art and its influence on pop and radical design.

driade

Today, the “design landscape” is quite different, permeated as it is by the globalization and all- embracing digitization.To understand Driade, you should visit its headquarters in Fossadello, near Piacenza.
In this sense, the headquarters is a perfect “aesthetic laboratory” for it expresses the idea of an overall image where everything contributes to create a work of art; a Wagnerian gesamtkunstwerk, where you can find pieces of architecture, furniture, objects, fabrics and carpets and where designers, photographers, graphic designers, web designers, and workers can meet together. There’s something that reminds us of the Grand Duke Ernest Louis of Hesse who called, in 1899, the architect of the Viennese Secession Joseph Maria Olbrich to design the “Colony of artists”, Mathildenhöhe, in Darmstadt: made of buildings by Olbrich himself and, among the others, by the young Peter Behrens. It was right Behrens to give the most acute definition of Darmstadt: “celebration of life and art.”

driade_nemo-home-page-2

It was meant to welcome artists, architects and designers in a place, symbol of aesthetic research, aiming at the popularization of applied arts in Germany, through the design and production of furniture and objects meant for retail.
The epoch of Mathildenhöhe was the early twentieth century, now we are in the XXI century: the age of the avant-garde, of rationalism vs. expressionism, of geometry vs. dreamy figures, has gone. The conflicts that characterized the design of the last century, if not yet disappeared, are certainly vanishing and have acquired a different sense.

36H-56H_02
This phase is marked by the multiplicity of languages that make it difficult to identify trends or relationships. A variety of authors, not always easily assessable and not all entirely acceptable, is building this century, which is characterized, in art and design, by pluralism, multiplicity of signs, and “idiolects” – as Roland Barthes called the use of language specific of a single author. The “Aesthetic laboratory” of Driade is fully relevant in this new and pluralist twenty-first century, while continuing to pursue its dream of “celebration of life and art”. Vanni Pasca

Driade is a complex project about refined aesthetics of living. In its multifaceted and eloquent catalog, Antonia Astori’s containment systems dialogue with Aleph collection furnishing: while the former organize space and constitute its skeleton, the latter isa multilingual laboratory of contemporary design.
Over the years, the catalog has displayed and promoted a rich variety of researches, poetries and international trends, portraying Driade as a constantly changing, one-of-a-kind aesthetic experiment. Today, we can clearly see what has implicitly made the difference right from the tokyo-pop-1outset: a predisposition to listening a sort of alertness and close attention to the signs coming from overseas, in order to develop those which can be translated into familiar pieces of furniture.

The modular systems, in their abstract dimension of organizing grids, have always been a kind2727

of architecture capable of absorbing and redistributing the impact of different languages. Today they have become more precious, often assuming the form of rigorous furnishing. They still guide though the flow of languages that shakes the customs of traditional living.

This permeability to differences makes the Driade project a highly up-to-date proposition, open to the future. It rejects the leveling of globalization, but senses the vitality and freshness arising from a multiplication of places where ideas are developed and products are produced.

Driade multiplies local voices, crosses borders and opens up to different influences coming from various levels of culture. The guarantee lies in high quality standards, starting from the designers’ proposals right through to production and communication.Paradoxically, the more Driade grows and evolves,accommodating diverse articulations in its catalog, the simpler it becomes clarifying and laying bare the internal paths that make it possible to create organic and coherent areas of taste. Driade’s many personalitiesare organized around a system, and each of them lives its own autonomous and complete life, which can be either orderly or unconventional, neobourgeois or revolutionarily aristocratic depending on the sensitivity and taste of whoever is choosing. Each person finds his or her own individual Driade. The extent of the tonal range, the variety of accents, and the potential to introduce dissonances that accentuate the harmony of the whole: these are the elements that differentiate Driade in the apparently elementary microcosm of living.

More than just a “brand”, Driade is thought of as a “global brand”, where the aesthetic and promotional richness is due to the character of its authors more than to the logic of a traditional business strategy. From the beginning, thus, the press communication was assigned a strategic and “evocative” role, basically on two levels: the divulgation and the promotion. Both of this functions give rise to a “metalanguage” where the “words” of individual artists are organized within a flow of communications, including publishing initiatives, slogans, events, etc. : in this way, the product’s explanation it’s told both by the story of an atmosphere and the allusion to a space where individual objects are witnesses and guarantors.
In this case too, you have to look behind effects to find people: Adelaide Astori, who interpreted emphatically the concept of production as collection with her unitary and continuous press direction, imagined a “second life” where objects and fDriadeInOutfurnishings were more real than in reality.
As Italo Lupi wrote, Adelaide Astori has been able to “imagine the photo shoot as a true product of the dramatic technique”: the “houses” of Driade arise, in fact, from the most “precious” room in the factory of Fossadello, the white room, where things are arranged as an idealized vision, that becomes tangible and concrete though the photographed image.
Communication, therefore, is not only the natural vehicle for the transmission of data: its “virtual” nature acquire, in fact, a structural value which is one with the eclecticism of the catalog : it’s a catalog itself, or rather a container where the artists’ idiosyncrasies and the producers’ individuality are combined into a single image. Virtual and real at the same time.
Fulvio Irace.

“Beauty factory”, “agency-enterprise”, “creative laboratory” … Many definitions have tried, over time, to define the atypical image of Driade in the landscape of international design. Each of them depict a part of reality, but none describes it all. Behind every company, there are indeed individuals, charisma, intuition and dedication of a unique character that finds, in the outline of work, the most suitable soil for the completion of its personality.

img_0343
How could you possibly think about “Wiener Werkstätten” without Joseph Hoffmann, Omega Workshops without the extravagant members of the exclusive Bloomsbury group, Memphis without Ettore Sottsass or Alchymia without Alessandro Mendini? Similarly, in 1968, Driade would have never been born if a young graduate in architecture hadn’t decided to turn his back to the family business – a solid enterprise of concrete prefabricated – to give shape to a dream very close to an obsession. Producing furniture and furnishings not as “types” – that is, elements of an infinite assembly line- but as individual art objects; to become, therefore, not an entrepreneur, but an art collector. The obsession becomes production, but its rules are not those of the market, but those of many individual choices. Enrico Astori has repeatedly stated that he would have never been able to produce things that wouldn’t have liked to give friends or keep at home: it may seem incredible (or naive) to trade analysts but, this is how Driade was developed as a factory of art. It is so that its greedy, irreducible diversity of creative enterprise, focusing on the language of authors, artists and designers, was developed and spread.
The strategy of the collector becomes the company’s strategy: the brand is focused on the essence of experimentation and dissemination. Driade collections, in almost half a century, have become something like a logical labyrinth, where everything finds its natural place and talks to us of an endless time when collections, themselves, perpetuate as a family legacy. That’s why Elisa Astori has become, since a while, the mistress of a house that needs to be always updated and enriched of the idiosyncrasies and ambitions of the heirs, to remain vital and constantly open to the world.

A classic, modern design that enhances any environment, Bertoia’s side chair remains a fascinating study in bent metal and a fixture of mid-century design. The form is made of metal rods interconnected with leaving visible empty transparent space as he liked the idea of air flowing through the design.

The original wire chair version was created in 1950. Charles Eames instigated a court case in which he claimed copyright to the original diamond chair design concept. The court eventually forced Harry to change his design. He had no choice but to get back to the design drawing board and with focused inspiration, he created the 1952 version of the chair we recognize today as the Diamond Chair. It was an instant triumph, leaving no doubt to both Charles Eames and those who knew him, that the real design inspiration for the open form wire chair belonged to Bertoia. It is doubtful that he realized at the time that his Diamond Chair would become mid-century modern icon for over a half a century. To this day, it is still regarded as one of the top chair designs in the history of modern furniture.

Charles-Édouard Jeanneret, who chose to be known as Le Corbusier, was a Swiss-born French architect, designer, urbanist, writer and painter, famous for being one of the architects of what now is called Modern architecture or the International style. He was born in Switzerland and became a French citizen in 1930. His career spanned five decades, with his buildings constructed throughout central Europe, India, Russia, and one each in North and South America.

He was a pioneer in studies of modern high design and was dedicated to providing better living conditions for the residents of crowded cities. His striking innovations have influenced every generation of architects that followed him.

This reproduction is not the low ball, bad knock off, units that you may see on E-Bay, or Amazon. Instead the are flawless modern art units that combine function with form to create an iconic statement. This LC armchair would be at home in any living room, art gallery, or public space application.

Charles-Edouard Jeanneret, widely known as Le Corbusier (October 6, 1887 – August 27, 1965), was a French Swiss born architect, famous for his contributions to what is now called modernism, or the International Style, along with Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, Walter Gropius, and Theo van Doesburg.. He was a pioneer in theoretical studies of modern design and was dedicated to providing better living conditions for the residents of crowded cities. Le Corbusier began experimenting with furniture design in 1928 after inviting the architect Charlotte Perriand to join his studio. His cousin Pierre Jeanneret also collaborated on many of the designs. Before the arrival of Perriand, Le Corbusier relied on ready-made furniture to furnish his projects, such as the simple pieces manufactured by Thonet.

LC2 Sofa -What to watch out for.

LC2 Sofa -What to watch out for.

The Le Corbusier group referred to their LC2 and LC3 collections (1928) as “cushion baskets,” which they designed as a modernist response to the traditional club chair. These pieces reverse the standard structures of sofas and chairs by having frames that are externalized. With thick, resilient pillows resting within the steel frames, the idea was to offer all the comfort of a padded surface while applying the elegant minimalism and industrial rationale of the International Style.

Frank Lloyd Wright (born Frank Lincoln Wright, June 8, 1867 – April 9, 1959) was an American architect, interior designer, writer and educator, who designed more than 1,000 projects, which resulted in more than 500 completed works.

American architect Frank Lloyd Wright played a leading role in transforming the practice of architecture early in the 20th century. Trained as an engineer at the University of Wisconsin, but strongly drawn to architecture, he began his career as an architect in Chicago, working in the offices of Dankmar Adler and Louis Sullivan. At the age of 29 he set up his own practice and began work on a number of residential projects, chiefly in the Oak Park area of Chicago. These “Prairie Houses,” designed in the early 1900′s, are characterized by their use of natural materials – stone, brick and wood. Their low elevations, and gently sloping roofs create a strong horizontal emphasis.

Wright claimed to build “organic” architecture that seemed to grow naturally out of the surrounding landscape. He believed the internal space, furnishings and decorative details of a house to be intrinsic to its architecture. Many of his projects incorporated site specific furniture and fittings. These unified projects were intended to possess a natural “organic” beauty that would promote the life of the human spirit. Instead of walls, furnishings were often used as spatial dividers, thereby creating more open interiors and a sense of flowing space.

Wright’s preoccupation with geometric forms and intersecting planes in his architecture, led him to develop a similar style for furniture. For example, a series of metal desks and chairs designed for the Larkin Building in Buffalo, New York, were designed to be functionally and visually unified with their surroundings. They were also among the first metal items for indoor use that did not mimic wood. The chairs were made of painted steel with leather upholstered seats and rigidly geometric backs with square perforations. In addition to furniture, Wright designed stained glass windows, ceramics and glass, metalwork and textiles. Wright’s work became distanced from its Arts & Crafts origins as he began to explore the structural and decorative potential of industrial concrete blocks which he used in the design of the Imperial Hotel in Tokyo and four houses in Los Angeles.
