Comfort made manifest in one great design. The story goes that Cesare Cassina punched his fist into the original prototype by Magistretti complaining that it did not fit the brief for true comfort. It was only after the back had been broken that the Milanese architect hit on a better solution to replace traditional upholstery. This award winning design won a Compasso d’Oro in 1979, and naturally spawned countless imitations.
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.
