Driade presents Mingx, the new collection designed by Konstantin Grcic. The design of the Mingx collection issues from the same tubular profile that also inspired the bookcase ZigZag, and develops into an extensive family of elements: seats, stools and tables, which establish a harmonious mutual dialogue that also extends to the bookcase.
The name Mingx clearly refers to the Ming dynasty that most influenced the progress of Chinese culture, turning China into the heart of Eastern trade.
The seats are intentionally inspired by the archetype of the ancient Chinese chair, which was originally in wood, and are developed into chair, armchair and small low armchair with leather seat produced in the same hues as the metal frame. The seating collection is enriched by stools proposed in two variants, with and without backrest. The tables with American walnut top and tubular steel frame are proposed in the cantilevered or flush version, like the writing desk and the low table.
Four colour variants are proposed for the leather seat: bronze, black, grey and orange. The Mingx collection is also proposed in the outdoor version with quartzite and sheet metal table tops, seat covers in outdoor fabrics, and frames subjected to protective cataphoresis treatment.
