Cassina has been designing the future of interiors for 90 years. Founded by Cesare and Umberto Cassina in Meda in 1927, the company launched industrial design in Italy during the 50’s by taking a completely new approach which saw a shift from handcraftsmanship to serial production.
The company was pioneering in the way that it showed a striking inclination for research and innovation, combining technological skill with traditional craftsmanship. For the first time important architects and designers were involved and encouraged to envision new designs to be transformed into projects, a characteristic that still distinguishes the company. Today Cassina continues to represent new ways of living, creating harmonious settings that bring together the best of contemporary design.
Cassina is particularly specialised in carpentry workmanship and the manufacturing of upholstered armchairs and sofas. All products are in fact now branded with the MedaMade logo, a guarantee of the quality and uniqueness of locally produced products. .

In 1964 the Cassina I Maestri Collection began with the acquisition of the exclusive worldwide rights to serially produce four models designed by Le Corbusier (who was alive at the time), Pierre Jeanneret and Charlotte Perriand. Over the following years this collection has brought together some of the most iconic furniture by the greatest 20th Century architects of modern classics (Gerrit T. Rietveld, Charles R. Mackintosh, E. Gunnar Asplund, Frank Lloyd Wright, Charlotte Perriand, Franco Albini, Marco Zanuso) with the aim of disseminating their cultural values.
