Designed by Ico Parisi in 1960 for Cassina, at that time “Figli di Amedeo Cassina”, the 875 is a welcoming and elegant armchair. The author’s typical experimentation has led to a project that is both classic and modern at the same time. Its proportions, with its large seat and comfortable armrests, outline its solemn profile, while the original arched steel supports in different finishes – to which its shell is bound – and the contrast of different ma-terials make it eclectic, innovative and functional in any room of the house. The structure of the armchair, initially padded with foam rubber cut into sharp edges, has now been re-issued with polyurethane foam padding to maintain its linear shape. Both the seat and backrest are upholstered in fabric from the Cassina collections, as are the removable cushions.

Cassina is an Italian and international furniture design company active since 1927. The Cassina furniture collection "I grandi Maestri" began in 1964 with the collaboration of designers such as Le Corbusier, Pierre Jeanneret and Charlotte Perriand. Cassina Group stands out for the production of chairs, tables, sofas, armchairs, beds and containers.
Cassina was one of the first Italian companies to focus on furniture research and innovation, collaborating with distinguished architects and designers to find new forms of design and thus beginning industrial design in Italy as early as the 1950s. Cassina has always had a very precise identity between technology and craftsmanship with a long tradition.
Cassina furniture and sofas are in fact always the result of the carpentry workshop, which has enhanced its value all over the world. Cassina's catalog for sofas, armchairs and chairs includes some of the most important design icons such as Cassina Le Corbusier, the famous Cassina LC1 chair, the Cassina LC2 armchair, the Cassina LC3 sofa and the Cassina LC4 Chaise Longue.
