Cassina, was founded in 1927 by brothers Cesare and Umberto Cassina in Meda, Italy. The brand was pioneering, thanks to its striking inclination for research and experimentation, working with many important architects and designers who were constantly encouraged to envision innovative designs. A characteristic that still distinguishes the company today. The Cassina collections feature, for example, pieces by great Italian architects such as Vico Magistretti (the iconic Maralunga sofa) and a series of renowned contemporary figures such as Philippe Starck and Piero Lissoni. Cassina has received a number of internationally acclaimed awards and today the label is the exclusive worldwide licensee of the Le Corbusier designs.
