For Cassina, working in wood has always been synonymous with skilled cabinet-making.
The quality to be found in the reissued "Le Corbusier Legno" collection is the result of a continuing tradition of hand carpentry and a disciplined control of the whole production cycle. Only the best types of wood are used, such as oak or chestnut, and Cassina carefully selects the top specimens, choosing them at the source and subjecting them to a controlled seasoning process within the workshop itself.
Cassina's tradition is based on craftsmanship. This is clear in the finish of the products, the choice of materials and the regular tests performed by specialists.
The quality of leather depends largely on the raw material. Cassina uses only full grain leather that exalts the natural and sensory properties of the material. The original leather must be perfect: leather with any clear defects is discarded and the leather that goes to the workshop is tested and classified again, one piece at a time.
The people who cut the leather also give the material a more particular inspection. Material that is already uniform is not given thorough polishing, and it is for this reason that Cassina's leather is so soft, velvety and durable.
Cassina has created a new type of leather for this collection: the glorious LCX Leather. This is more natural in appearance and softer to the touch than imitation leather, and is equally as weather and wear resistant. The small imperfections in the natural grain and soft feel give the final product a more personal feel.
