ertainly, the brand Cassina needs no introduction, in fact it’s one of the oldest names on the interior design scene. Cassina first started in 1927 as a small workshop, however a definite turning point was coming into contact with Gio Ponti, one of the leading figures on the Italian cultural scene. This partnership gave light to an undisputed international icon: the Superleggera chair, an instant commercial success. Throughout the years, the Cassina catalogue has offered a panorama of the best the interior design scene has to offer. And since 1965, Cassina has been bringing back renditions of iconic pieces by renowned designers of the twentieth century. From the chaise longue by Le Corbusier to the Zig Zag chair by Rietveld, from chairs by Frank Lloyd Wright to tables by Mackintosh. Furthermore, Cassina, marries top material quality with a constant production of new pieces.
