Cassina was founded in Northern Italy 1927 by brothers Cesare and Umberto Cassina. In the 90 years that have followed, the company has manufactured outstanding luxury furniture from many game-changing designers and design movements, in particular since the 1968 acquisition of the rights to reproduce some of the Bauhaus objects from the Berlin Bauhaus-Archiv, then the designs of Gerrit Rietveld and Frank Lloyd Wright in 1971 and Charles Rennie Mackintosh in 1972. This “Cassina I Maestri” collection has positioned Cassina at the forefront of important European furniture for nearly a century.
Cassina manufactures a wide range of furniture both from these iconic names and also from up-and-coming designers, at a range of price points, and of course with a vast array of materials and specifications. From collaborations with Philippe Starck to the instantly recognisable LC1 chair (below), Cassina offers one of the most versatile furniture collections in Europe.
