Matteo Thun, architect and designer, was born in Bolzano in 1952 and studied at the Academy of Salzburg with Oskar Kokoschka and at the University of Florence. After having worked with Ettore Sottsass, Matteo Thun became the cofounder of the Memphis-Group in Milan and partner of Sottsass Associati from 1980 to 1984 when he opened his own studio in Milan. In parallel he taught at the faculty of design at the University of Applied Arts in Vienna (Hochschule für Angewandte Kunst, Wien) from 1983 to 2000. In addition he acted as Art Director for Swatch from 1990 to 1993.

In 2000 he started the M.T. Partnership (MTP) with the partners Luca Colombo, Herbert Rathmaier and Antonio Rodriguez. Today, the studio includes a team of 50 Architects and Designers.

The creative approach of Matteo Thun to product design is characterized by simplified forms and the use of warm and natural materials. At the root of each project is an in-depth study of materials, technologies, the market and the client with a view to combining a minimal aesthetic with direct functionality. The goal of the innovative design items created by Matteo Thun is to influence the evolution of everyday life.

"A design method that is very close to my true way of being is so-called 'no design'. Or rather forgoing a personal form or a language that draws inspiration from an archetype. I want to rediscover the 'thing-ness' of things, that is, design a chair that is a chair through and through, where no design is not a negation of design" – Matteo Thun

Driade is an aesthetic workshop aimed at a continual experimentation and research in the art of living. All furniture and furnishings are designed to promote creativity over serialization of the industrial product. This is Driade “aesthetic laboratory” where everything contributes to create a work of art, indoor and outdoor furniture, objects and fabrics. This year Driade has opened its new showroom in via Borgogna 8, Milan.

Driade has a history of excellence, contributors to that are talented craftsmen working together to define new trends and give design a different meaning. During the 70s some of the most famous Italian designers like Antonia Astori, Enzo Mari and Alessandro Mendini, together with international names like Philippe Starck and Borek Sipek, just to name a few, started their creative collaboration.

In 2013 ItalianCreationGroup took the leading of the company and aimed at further developing its positioning on the new segments of the Italian and International clientele, to promote and export Italian excellence, and set the company as the benchmark of Made in Italy design in the world. For this reason Driade USA was created last summer in New York.

Indoor, outdoor and unique accessories are now showcased in the new Milan flagship showroom in via Borgogna. The project has been entirely realized by David Chipperfield, the company’s new Creative Director; an open, luminous space with an area of about 500 square meters organized on three levels, where products establish a dialogue, alternating iconic pieces and the latest new creations. A unique atmosphere, where the rigorous, harmonious architecture forms the perfect setting for the collection.
