Learn about Cassina Spa

Cassina SpA is a furniture manufacturing company specialising in a broad range of furniture including chairs, armchairs, tables, sofas and beds by well known designer.

The company was founded by brothers Cesare and Umberto Cassina in 1927, but it was not until the 1950s that it launched industrial design in Italy and expanded in size and fame.

Designers collaborating with Cassina included Mario Bellini, Gio Ponti, Vico Magistretti, Toshiyuki Kita, Gaetano Pesce, Theodore Waddell, Hannes Wettstein, Philippe Starck, Jean-Marie Massaud, Piero Lissoni, and others.

Aiding the company's growth to the mid 1960s was the large number of commissions for cruise ships, exclusive hotels and restaurants which accounted for a great part of the company's activity right up to the mid-sixties and beyond.

In 1964 the company acquired the rights to manufacture furniture designed by Le Corbusier, Pierre Jeanneret and Charlotte Perriand, the most important names of 20th century design, and a new division, the "Cassina I Maestri" (Cassina Masters) Collection was created. more...
