Included in Unesco’s 2016 Cultural Heritage list, the extraordinary architecture of Le Corbusier’s Capitol Complex, designed by Chandigarh in 1951, has received accolades for its celebration of an independent nation open to modernity. This table is amongst the furnishing used for the large gatherings of the Legislative Assembly. It almost evokes the serious activities taking place, with two large, solid wood, graphic elements shaped like “cornes entrecroisées”. Cassina’s reissue offers the classic version with a teak top and frame, and two versions in natural and black stained oak, with the option of a glass top in several sizes.
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.
