Patricia Urquiola interprets the happiness of life outdoors with a collection full of playful designs with rounded and sinuous shapes. The collection stands out for its environmentally sensitive approach using innovative, sustainable, completely Made in Italy materials thanks to the research of Cassina LAB, the collaboration between Cassina’s Research and Development Centre and Poli.design of the Politecnico di Milano.
The two-seater sofa and three combinable modules – a small and large terminal and a central element for creating cosy compositions – have a lacquered AISI 304 stainless steel frame supporting panels made of RFM®, a 100% recyclable, hand-finished, recycled, glass-reinforced plastic.
The backrest features the artisan weaving of polypropylene and nylon rope, while the two backrest cushions and the seat cushion are padded with 100% recycled fibre wadding obtained from PET and covered with a resistant, hypoallergenic fabric in 100% recycled PET polyester yarn.
Fringes of the cushions in the same shades as the rope are optional.
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.
