Lounge chair with frame in black stained beech. Seat (blue) and back (red) in lacquered multiplywood. The armchair can have a single seat and backrest cushion in fabric or leather.
With its subtle play of horizontal and vertical lines this Neoplastic chair became a manifesto for the De Stijl, so that all the parts for its frame fit together overlapping rather than using joints. The primary colours of the design in tribute to Mondrian’s painting, with its red, blue, yellow and then black for the frame, mark out all the different parts each one with specific functions.
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.
