Founded in 1927 by Cesare and Umberto Cassina, it introduced the industrial design in Italy in the 1950’s. The brand pioneered its remarkable inclination towards research and innovation, and for working hand-in-hand with important architects and designers of different backgrounds, encourageing them to conceive new designs, a feature that continues to distinguish the company today.
In fact, Cassina’s identity lies in an innovative fusion of traditional technology and craftsmanship.
CASSINA. Design and high quality furniture
In 1964 Cassina started the Collection I Maestri with the acquisition of the production of the exclusively rights for the four pieces designed by Le Corbusier, Pierre Jeanneret and Charlotte Perriand. Over time this collection expanded with more iconic pieces of furniture from great architects of modern classics such as Gerrit T. Rietveld, Charles R. Mackintosh, E. Gunnar Asplund, Frank Lloyd Wright, Charlotte Perriand and Franco Albini. Working closely with their heirs and their official foundations.
Today, numerous prestigious italian and other designers and architects collaborate with the collection Cassina I Contemporanei: Mario Bellini, Rodolfo Dordoni, Piero Lissoni, Vico Magistretti, Luca Nichetto, Gaetano Pesce, Gio Ponti and Philippe Starck, among others. This cross-cutting culture of absolute quality defines the uniqueness of each Cassina piece.
In June 2013 Cassina acquired Simon – a historic Italian furniture brand founded by Dino Gavina and Maria Simoncini – thus joining two pioneering companies that have in common the taste for experimentation and the ability to express the relationship between culture and production. Cassina Simon Collezione, included in the I Contemporanei Collection, brings together names such as Carlo Scarpa, Marcel Breuer and Kazuhide Takahama.
