Cassina create exclusive furniture mainly for the home. Carly was keen to partner with them when she begun NW3 Interiors. She wanted to be able to easily source these elite pieces directly from the manufacturer so that clients could have access to the Cassina Masters, a collection started 40 years ago. This collection includes some of the world’s most admired designers: Le Corbusier, Pierre Jeanneret and Charlotte Perriand. Carly enjoys looking at the LC4 chaise and thinking about when it was designed in 1928. It evokes inspiration from the era; a true iconic piece from a world-renowned brand.
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), they offer one of the most versatile furniture collections in Europe.
