Cab was conceived by the architect Mario Bellini in 1977, as an extension and prosthesis for the body: a skeleton in tubular steel and stretched, stitched leather, fastened to the frame with four zips. In a chair version or as an armchair with armrests, it comes in saddle leather in a vast assortment of colors and in saddle leather dyed in three different shades. Cab is part of the collection at the MoMA in New York and remains one of Cassina’s bestsellers.
Since it was established in 1927, Cassina has worked side by side with the world’s best designers, becoming a pioneer in European design. In 1964, Cassina took over production of the licensed works of Le Corbusier and his collaborators. It continues to hold the exclusive worldwide license from the Le Corbusier Foundation.
