CASSINA - Contemporary Furniture - ITALY

Around the world, the name Cassina is spontaneously associated with Italian design. Since 1927, Cassina has been a preeminent design leader and manufacturer of original contemporary furniture.

Cassina USA was established in 1994 to bring this contemporary furniture to the American market. Our modern classics include the Cassina I Maestri Collection by 20th century masters, as well as the contemporary designs of noted European designers. Many of these furniture designs are included in the collections of leading museums, and are found in the world’s best-furnished interiors.

The collection of lounge seating, chairs, tables, beds and storage systems may be viewed at our flagship showroom on 56th Street in New York City, and our Soho showroom on Wooster Street. Cassina is also available through our nationwide distribution network.

Cassina SpA, the parent company was founded in 1927 in the northern Italian region of Brianza. Operations were initially focused on woodworking and gradually expanded towards modern furnishing. During the mid-50’s Cassina engaged the talents of architects such as Gio Ponti, Afra and Tobia Scarpa, Mario Bellini and Vico Magistretti for design collaboration.

In order to broaden the appeal of the Cassina Collection, Franco Cassina initiated a visionary collaboration between Le Corbusier and Cassina. Building upon the success of the Le Corbusier license, the company launched the I Maestri Collection (Masters Collection), which today includes major icons of design history: Le Corbusier, Charles Rennie Mackintosh, Gerrit Rietveld, E. Gunnar Asplund, Charlotte Perriand, and Franco Albini.

Contemporary architects and designers continue the company’s commitment to the landmarks of modern furniture design.

The list of designers in our Contemporary Collection reads like a brief history of design… from the pioneering work of Gio Ponti to the conceptually flamboyant designs of Philippe Starck. From the sculptural shapes of Vico Magistretti, and humanistic industrial style of Mario Bellini, to the innovative forms of Toshiyuki Kita, and the artistic expression of Gaetano Pesce. Designers Francesco Binfaré, Andrea Branzi, Paolo Deganello, Piero Lissoni, Jorge Pensi, Hannes Wettstein, and newcomers Patrick Jouin and Jean Marie Massaud epitomize Cassina’s commitment to the Italian design ideals of craftsmanship and quality. It is a true fusion of industrial technology with artisan manufacturing.
