Matteo Thun for Driade. Matteo Thun with Antonio Rodriguez created a new armchair for Driade. Called Meran, it is a modern version of a club chair or “fumoir”. The armchair is sober and comfortable it’s perfectly executed and can be ordered in leather or velvet. It’s more fun to choose a bright and unexpected color like this bright pink with white piping, seen in Matteo’s office.
