The Cotone family has acquired new members to go with its upholstered armchair that was launched in 2017. These are a slim version of the same, called, not surprisingly, Cotone Slim, as well as a table and chair, the latter having a solid wood seat and back. This chair is produced, using advanced CNC machinery, in Cassina’s carpentry workshop in Meda, in the Brianza area north of Milan. The various elements in the collection can be mixed and matched according to one’s preferences and requirements, thanks also to the frame in extruded aluminium, with its eye-catching industrial details, a veritable emblem of Cassina’s furniture-making mastery. The seat and back, in solid ashwood, slot into the anodised aluminium frame to create a highly contemporary look, light-weight but also super-slender. The frame, available in the same colours as the other pieces, creates a clever contrast with the black seat and back; with a gloss black frame, Cotone Legno takes on an extra touch of refinement.
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.
