Cassina and Le Corbusier have been active players in the design community for nearly a century.  Their presence is as relevant today as it was in the late 1920s, when the roots of Cassina were established by brothers Cesare and Umberto Cassina in the northern Italian region of Brianza, and Le Corbusier introduced his juxtaposition of traditional and innovative design in a collection of furniture for day to day life. The marriage between this manufacturer and designer was made in 1964 – one year before Le Corbusier’s death – through an exclusive licensing agreement that helped to blend his iconic designs with modern technology.

Renzo Frau founded Poltrona Frau ('Frau Armchair’) in 1912, with a commitment to producing high quality handcrafted furniture. The early designs produced by the company reflected the art deco styling emerging from France, and the Victorian classic look from England. During this period, the company won several high profile commissions, including the Royal Family, and was embraced by the film industry with several pieces included in prominent movies of the time. Many of these early pieces remain in the collection today, and are a testament to Poltrona Frau’s heritage and the importance still placed upon the traditional art of furniture making.

Cappellini was founded in 1946 by Enrico Cappellini in the Italian Brianza region, north of Milan. Cappellini began as a furniture maker specializing in wooden furniture and case goods. After Enrico’s son Giulio joined the company, bringing a passion for art & design, Cappellini experienced a creative evolution that has placed them at the forefront in the world of design and furnishings.
