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. Today, the "design landscape" is quite different, permeated as it is by the globalization and all- embracing digitization.
Driven by a singular desire and a very creative background, Nani established nanimarquina in 1987 with a clear goal: to design unique and surprising handcrafted rugs for people to enjoy.
The idea of blending contemporary design to traditional rugs was well received and soon nanimarquina embarked on the adventure of outsourcing production to those countries that offered cultural value and unlimited possibilities for rug craftsmanship.
PETITE FRITURE, design editor created in 2009, was born with the will to promote young talents, and to develop with them a collection of objects, lighting and small furniture that creates a vibration. The result are elegant and accessible objects that in a simple and uninhibited manner tell a story; objects that understand our daily life and invite us to savor it.
