The inspiration for the design of this armchair is rooted in the great classics of Cassina, once again the benchmark or its ability to create highly expressive models with high-end artisanal and industrial content. These are the foundations for a 4-legged armchair that immediately stands out for the strong contrast between its minimalist, rigorous and highly elegant rigid supporting structure, produced from aluminium with extruded profiles, specially created for this model, and the seat: very soft and welcoming seat, produced entirely from down, which almost seems to be propped up. The comfort of an armchair for a dining table chair that invites the user to sit and relax. A rich project with great design and production value due to its minute attention to detail, suitable for domestic use, around the dinner table, or in broader contexts, around meeting tables. The aluminium supporting structure comes in different versions: lacquered matt black or natural anodised, or in the colours matt red, matt greyblue, green or copper. The internal padded part is in polyurethane foam covered with a soft and comfortable down quilt, upholstered in fabric or leather.
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.
