The year in which Antonia Astori began his career as an architect and designer in 1968, the year when, along with other colleagues, suggests new architectural and functional before the need for effective organization of space.
Driade 1, its first project, in view of the space problems due to overcrowding has been designed primarily to be proposed as an infrastructure for indoor spaces. It consists of a system of independent volumes which, although independent, are penetrable and modular.
In this idea of ââa system designed as an aggregation of independent parts, volumes made ââof lacquered wood, chipboard, lies the new concept of the project: split, with the introduction of volume, the interior of a room.
Begins to take hold with the idea that a system can furnish and divide all areas of a single environment in a practical and functional.
