The Cassina I Maestri includes the most symbolic and significant works from the leading figures in the Modern Movement, considered true landmark pieces in contemporary design. The company began to acquire the exclusive reproduction rights - and to launch its culture of re-edition – in 1965, with the reconstruction of furniture created by Le Corbusier, Pierre Jeanneret and Charlotte Perriand, later followed by projects by Gerrit Thomas Rietveld, Charles Rennie Mackintosh, Erik Gunnar Asplund, Frank Lloyd Wright and Franco Albini.
In 2015 the collection opened up to pieces by Marco Zanuso, revealing an evolutionary approach based upon an ongoing analysis of historical heritage, aimed at progressively introducing prominent designers. Cassina’s philosophy is rooted in the retrieval of the archetypal codes that still today guide and inspire the development of contemporary design and architecture, updating prototypes from the past by means of faithful reissues that encompass the language of innovation and novelty of their Masters. The collection thus becomes a means of expression of authentic and absolute values, capable of transcending space and time and therefore projecting their design distinction and uniqueness into the present and future of living.
