Founded in 1968, Driade quickly gained fame for the quality of a ground-breaking idea and a very innovative manufacturing policy. The dialectic between “furniture” and “equipment” generated long-standing collaboration with the most influential designers of the 1970’s as if to form an ideal gallery of “art editions”. Driade is now an aesthetics workshop that explores home-living and evolves into many different histories around a central, unitary nucleus. Today the vast Driade catalogue includes objects of art and daily use, furniture for the home, garden, office and community, clothes-closets, kitchens and systems of combinable furnishings.
DRIADE Pip-e Chair
Even a classical image, as a railed chair, in the hands of Philippe Starck acquires a particular connotation. In Pip-e the sequence of horizontal elements, which create the seat and back definitely, takes on a strong chiaroscuro and goes, unexpectedly, to accompany the bending of the knees. Pip-e is moulded of weather-proof and durable polypropylene. Thanks to its material features the Pip-e chair is perfectly suitable for indoor as well as outdoor use.
Pip-e comes in white, yellow, orange or grey polypropylene monobloc.
