CASSINA FOCUSES ON AUTHENTICITY
Following the renewal of the collaboration with the Fondation Le Corbusier, Pernette Perriand-Barsac and the heirs of Pierre Jeanneret for the production of the most renowned 20th Century design icons, Cassina has restored the original historical French names of these models. design icons, Cassina has restored the original historical French names of these models. A decision that, in the lead up to the 50th anniversary of the Cassina iMaestri Collection in 2023, underlines the importance of authenticity for the company that is always more committed to diffusing the collection’s values through meticulous research and constant collaboration with the heirs.
Additionally, the name in French is now only preceded by the model number. This information is enriched with further details regarding adaptations and integrations, accurately paying homage to the work of the three architects and providing an immediate, complete and exhaustive presentation of each piece, for example, the sofa '2 Fauteuil Grand Confort, petit modèle, deux places by Le Corbusier, Pierre Jeanneret, Charlotte Perriand, adaptation de Charlotte Perriand pour Cassina en 1978'.
Cassina’s emblematic ability to reissue the great icons of design began in 1964 when the company acquired the exclusive worldwide rights to serially produce the first four models designed by Le Corbusier, Pierre Jeanneret and Charlotte Perriand. Since then, Cassina is the only company authorised to produce the designs of the three architects, working in close collaboration with the foundation and heirs and under the guidance of leading experts specialised in the history of design. The Collection Le Corbusier®, Pierre Jeanneret®, Charlotte Perriand® is constantly evolving, and expanding, also with archive editions that have never been industrially produced before and would have otherwise remained unknown, restoring to the world new projects of great historical value.
