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.
Cassina began producing LC products, including the iconic LC4 chaise lounge chair, as well as armchairs, sofas, and tables. Though Le Corbusier’s illustrious career came to an end in 1965, his influence was undisputed.
Cassina’s identity lies in innovative fusion of industrial technology with artisan manufacturing. A preeminent design leader and manufacturer of original contemporary furniture, Cassina works with designers to create chairs, sofas, armchairs, and accessories.
