Park Associati’s first design collaboration with Driade

by Cecilia Di Marzo

17/04/2013 - Gazelle and Mollina: these are the names chosen by Park Associati to present their first collaboration with Driade at iSaloni 2013.

Filippo Pagliani and Michele Rossi used to deal with 'space'. They presented Mollina, “a light and intentionally 'trasparent' seat".

"Each part is realized in the 'perfect' material to reach this aim: metal for the slightly inflected legs and for the armrests, polyurethane for the shell, but the resulting overall image is unitary. The profile of the seat is lightweight, yet embracing. Even the colors choices, ranging from white to beige, up to grey, show their willingness to enter into with elegant discretion”.


Gazelle is the proposal for a table and writting desk.

“A table that plays on an apparent imbalance, supporting a strongly materic top, especially in the 'cement' version, by a sequence of three structures placed in a totally unpredictable way".

"Built as parallelepipeds and fixed either perpendicularly or parallel to the surface, the three base frames are configured rather like a 'vacuum' that seems to let the top raising into the air. The traditional logic of the legs at the end is hus rejected, increasing the accessibility of the chairs that will surround the table itself”.
