Cassina: Home design furniture
The “Cassina I Maestri” Collection includes some of the most important sofas, armchairs, armchairs, tables and chaise longues of furniture created by figures of the Modern Movement, pieces that have become milestones in contemporary design. In 1965 the Italian company Cassina started with the reissue of furniture created by Le Corbusier, Pierre Jeanneret or Charlotte Perriand, followed by Gerrit Thomas Rietveld, Charles Rennie Mackintosh, Erik Gunnar Asplund and Frank Lloyd Wright. The collection was expanded and enriched in the mid-2000s with furniture designed by Franco Albini. Cassina I Maestri has allowed the values of contemporary design furniture to be recovered. Reproduction rights have been acquired exclusively by Cassina: Those by Le Corbusier in 1964, by Rietveld in 1971, by Mackintosh in 1972, by Asplund in 1981, by Wright in 1985, by Charlotte Perriand in 2004 and by Franco Albini in 2007.
It is undoubtedly a historical brand of Italian design from the 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s and 90s to the present day, in which it continues to produce contemporary furniture together with the best current international designers, such as Javier Mariscal, and reissuing historical pieces, such as the Nuage and Tokyo collections by Charlotte Perriand or the already classic designs by Le Corbusier.
Cassina has turned to the creative genius of the most famous contemporary architects, such as Gio Ponti, Paolo Deganello, Gaetano Pesce, Vico Magistretti or Mario Bellini.
