Design Excellence, Rooted in the History of Modern Classics With a Vision Toward the Future

Always future focused, Cassina addresses contemporary lifestyles with the creation of complete and harmonious atmospheres. Its constant commitment to research and innovation, combining technological skill and traditional craftsmanship, is embodied in a unique, eclectic collection that spans over 12 decades of design excellence.

Renowned Design Icons

Cassina’s emblematic ability to reissue design icons began in 1964 when the company acquired the exclusive worldwide rights to serially produce the first four models designed by Le Corbusier, Pierre Jeanneret, and Charlotte Perriand, initiating an in-depth philological procedure that later established the Cassina iMaestri Collection in 1973. Over the following years this collection has exclusively brought together some of the most iconic designs by great architects, such as Gerrit Rietveld, Charles Rennie Mackintosh, and Franco Albini. In 2023, Cassina celebrated its 50th anniversary with the introduction of four new masters, including renowned architects Charles and Ray Eames.

Materials and Technology

Cassina has always had a pioneering attitude, thanks to its commitment to research and innovation. During the 1960s, having understood the potential of the innovative materials of the time, Cassina launched Ciprea, designed in 1968 by Afra and Tobia Scarpa—the first example of a singular volume armchair made from expanded polyurethane foam without any internal reinforcement. The research for new materials and technologies continued with Maralunga, designed in 1973 by Vico Magistretti—the first sofa featuring an adjustable backrest and the 1979 Compasso d’Oro award recipient. In 2008, the provocative Privé sofa by Philippe Starck was launched, employing the innovative capitonné process that soon became an international patent.
