Original meanings of projects
Reconstruction of the furniture in the "Cassina I Maestri" collection began in the 1960s. Works by Le Corbusier, P. Jeanneret and C. Perriand form an iconic part of this portfolio and the recreation project involved a detailed study of the original designs.
Cassina had exclusive access to a range of documents including drawings, sketches and prototypes. These were carefully analysed and subsequently discussed with the Heirs and collaborators most familiar with the work of these famous designers.
From 1972 onwards, and in partnership with Filippo Alison, Cassina has employed a rigorous method designed to recreate in each object all the fine qualities of the Artist's original plan
