Founded by Cesare and Umberto Cassina in 1927, Cassina was one of the first firms that manufactured pieces of furniture designed by architects. Pieces that later would become classics of the design as the furniture of Le Corbusier, Charlotte Perriand, Gerrit T. Rietveld, Charles R. Mackintosh, Mario Bellini, E. Gunnar Asplund, and more recently of Piero Lissoni, Gio Ponti, Philippe Starch and Gaetano Pesce, among others.
Cassina not only is important for its furniture editor facet, but also for being a diffuser of the values of design in the XX century. From its origins, the firm was pioneer for its notable inclination to the investigation and innovation, and to work hand to hand with important architects and designers, encouraging them to conceive new deigns, a characteristic that is still distinguishing the company nowadays. In fact, the identity of Cassina lives in an innovative fusion of technology and traditional craft.
