From the state of Lower Saxony to the international market
Casala was founded at Lauenau (Lower Saxony) in 1917. These days the German sales office with showroom is established here.
Casala’s history is more tempestuous than its age should suggest. In 1917 the production of wooden shoe soles was started. It was not long before Casala concentrated on the production of wooden furniture, and later on metal and upholstered furniture as well. Casala made a reputation for itself with school furniture in the 1950s.
In the 1980s and 1990s ownership changed a few times. Nowadays Casala is established at Culemborg, owned by Daan van der Winkel. In 1972 he began as Casala’s representative in The Netherlands, and in that same year he founded Casala Meubelen Nederland bv.
This independent enterprise was not involved in the economically hard times experienced by Casala of Lauenau. In 2002 Casala Meubelen Nederland bv acquired the model rights and components of the collection.
Thus the new Casala remained close to the old Casala. For Dutch Casala has been connected to Casala for almost 35 years now. Its suppliers, largely from Germany, are the same and the technical and ergonomic know-how of the Casala tradition has been preserved.
Currently Casala produces modern project furniture with a long lifespan. Rapid handling times, flexible use and technical innovations are first and foremost in its development. Ninety years of experience in the furniture industry guarantee that, besides looking good, Casala’s chairs are comfortable as well. Casala is active in over 20 countries worldwide.
