FROM 1927 TO TODAY

Established in 1927 by Cesare and Umberto Cassina in Meda, Italy, Cassina launched industrial design in Italy in the 1950s, based on a totally innovative approach that marked the transition from artisan production to mass production. With a mindset focused on research and innovation, Cassina combines technology and long-standing artisan craftsmanship. 

Early Years and Founding (1927-1940s)

Cassina was established in 1927 by brothers Cesare and Umberto Cassina in Meda, Italy. Initially, the company specialized in high-quality cabinet making, emphasizing craftsmanship and attention to detail.

Industrial Design Revolution (1950s-1960s)

In the 1950s, Cassina pioneered the industrial design movement, merging traditional craftsmanship with cutting-edge technology. This era marked the beginning of their collaborations with prominent architects and designers. Gio Ponti was one of the first to collaborate with Cassina, leading to the creation of iconic pieces such as the Superleggera chair.

Iconic Collaborations (1960s-1970s)

Cassina's reputation for innovation and quality attracted leading designers of the time, including Le Corbusier, Pierre Jeanneret, and Charlotte Perriand. Their partnership with these designers resulted in the production of some of the most influential furniture pieces of the 20th century. The LC series, designed by Le Corbusier, Jeanneret, and Perriand, became a cornerstone of modern furniture design.

Expansion and Global Recognition (1980s-1990s)

During the 1980s and 1990s, Cassina expanded its portfolio, working with designers like Vico Magistretti and Mario Bellini. These collaborations further solidified Cassina's status as a leader in contemporary furniture design. The company continued to innovate, producing pieces that combined functionality with artistic expression.

Continued Innovation and Legacy (2000s-Present)

Entering the 21st century, Cassina maintained its commitment to innovation and quality. Collaborations with contemporary designers such as Patricia Urquiola and Philippe Starck have kept the brand at the forefront of modern design. Cassina’s dedication to blending tradition with modernity ensures that their furniture remains both timeless and relevant.
