Duc is an original project from 1976 founded on the combination of cutting-edge materials and structural technology. While respecting the innovative and sophisticated character of the original design, Cassina renews and updates this sofa, both in terms of comfort and the size of the seat, while maintaining its characteristic panel structure assembled by means of a zip that runs along the sides for its entire height. Thanks to the study carried out by Cassina LAB, a collaboration between the Cassina Research and Development Centre and Poli.design at the Milan Polytechnic, the cushion padding in polyurethane foam is wrapped with a 100% recycled fibre, obtained from PET mainly recovered from the sea, guaranteeing comfort and respect for the environment.
This new version does not include side cushions like the original model however it is possible to add optional armrest cushions.
Duc-Duc is available in a two or three-seater sofa and armchair.
Active since 1927, Cassina was one of the first Italian companies to focus on furniture research and innovation. It partnered with distinguished architects and designers to find new ways of designing and thus beginning industrial design in Italy as early as the 1950s. Cassina has always had a very precise identity aknowledged allover the world, due to the balance between technology and craftsmanship.
The Cassina collection "I grandi Maestri" began in 1964 with the collaboration of designers such as Le Corbusier, Pierre Jeanneret and Charlotte Perriand.
