Cassina works industrially in the contemporary furnishing sector.
It produces chairs, tables, armchairs, beds, and furniture in general with a particular flair for upholstered items and work in wood, leather and other top-quality materials.
The Cassina collection is eclectic, and has always been so. It is open to design projects from varying cultures and historical backgrounds, it welcomes them and makes them its own, stamping them with its own personality, its own trademark.
A Cassina product is the fruit of different competences and professionalities, from which spring results that are always original and exclusive. Products from the Cassina collection hark back to different inspirations, sometimes even contradictory. But a common feature is revealed; the courage to seek quality across different types and languages, quality that has made the
Cassina product a point of reference for the international culture of design.
To produce its furniture, Cassina has entrusted the intelligence, the hopes, the fears, and the genius of the most famous architects and designers of the 20th century; it is a courage and a challenge from which excellent results have derived. Gathered together under the Cassina label are to be found the formal research if Gio Ponti, with his Superleggera, a masterpiece which would be difficult to match, the provocative irony of the radical design of Paolo Deganello and Archizoom, Gaetano Pesce's original research, the indisputable brilliance of Vico Magistretti in his interpretations of everyday articles of furniture, the theoretical tenacity of Mario Bellini. But there we find also "Mackintosh's melancholy modern intuition, the visionary precision of Le Corbusier and Charlotte Perriand, Wright's revolutionary certitude, Rietveld's geometrical follies and the classical refinement of Asplund."
