Cassina was founded in Milan in 1927 in the initiative of the brothers Cesare and Umberto Cassina. Through the decades, the collaborations with designers as Gio Ponti, Frank Lloyd Wright, Le Corbusier, Charlotte Perriand, Gaetano Pesce, Vico Magistretti and contemporary ones such as Jean Marie Massaud, Hannes Wettsein, Piero Lissoni and Philippe Starck, successfully led to become one of the most historical furnishing companies worldwide.
