Founded in 2007 in the town of Como, Italy, Draga & Aurel is a multi-disciplinary design studio that works along the spectrum of furniture, textile and interior design.

Draga Obradovic began her career in the fashion industry, first working in London and Milan as a textile designer before eventually settling in Como. Aurel K. Basedow graduated from Milan’s Accademia di Belle Arti with a degree in Fine Arts, having previously trained as a carpenter and woodworker.

Thanks to their sympathetic methods, combined with an artist’s approach to material and composition Draga & Aurel are widely recognised for their clever reinvention of bespoke vintage design pieces. Their showing at 2009’s Salone del Mobile introduced the duo to the world stage; it followed the partnerships with Italian leather manufacturer Baxter, wallpaper brand Wall&Deco, the major American fashion retailer Anthropologie and the Italian luxury furniture company Visionnaire.

In occasion of the 2019 Milan Design Week the design duo presented Transparency Matters, an exhibition of limited edition pieces, entirely fabricated by hand in their Como atelier. Later, Draga & Aurel have participated with a site-specific project to Nomad Circle, the showcase for contemporary art and collectible design, in the 2019 edition in Venice and in the 2020 in St. Moritz.
