This wooden screen is based on an original tempera and pencil sketch on paper by artist Giacomo Balla. Today, Cassina revives this brightly coloured accessory to divide and complete the various areas of the house with a real artistic touch.
The Balla Screen consists of three honeycomb panels of different heights and widths joined together by brushed brass double-action hinges specially designed by Cassina, carefully interpreting the original design. The silk-screen printed decoration, on both sides, is available in two versions, with orange background in the colours yellow and green, respecting the shades in the Balla sketch, and with white background in the colours blue and green.
The Balla Screen, part of the Cassina I Maestri Collection, bears the signature of the designer and a serial number which guarantees the authenticity of the product.
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.
