At the end of the 1940s The Skin of Our Teeth (La Famiglia Antropus) by Thornton Wilder, was one of the first comedies performed at the Piccolo Teatro in Milan, for which Zanuso was commissioned to design the scenery and furnishings. These included an armchair for which he used new materials with which he had been experimenting and that he christened the Antropus.
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.
