Giuseppe Chigiotti casts his mind back to the great Vienna of the early 20th century, where Wagner and Loos, along with Klimt and Schiele, listened to Mahler and read Schnitzler or Freud. He thinks truly about Josef Hoffmann and takes inspiration from him in the squared button-back pattern and, more subtly, in the recovering of the bourgeois custom of conversation.

As a historian, he’s author of numerous books and essays on the theory and history of design and architecture, with a particular interest in the projecting furniture and objects for domestic spaces. At the same time to teaching and researching in universities, he works as a designer. He also collaborated with the publishing initiatives of Driade by writing lyrics for "Manuals of furnishing " and was author of " A journey trough Driade living" as well as co-author, with Adelaide Acerbi, of The world of Objects". For Driade he designed a collection of tableware, identifying forgotten types and lost manufactures. He faced, always for Driade and with the same attitude, the projects of lamps Grape, armchair and sofa Hoff, “tables” Ping and Mak, which all arise from a deep attention to the ways of modern living.
