Particular attention has also been dedicated to the iconic pieces of the Cassina I Maestri Collection, for which the brand has the exclusive worldwide production rights, working in close collaboration with the official foundations and heirs of the great architects from the 20th Century, including Franco Albini, Le Corbusier, Pierre Jeanneret, Charlotte Perriand, Charles Rennie Mackintosh, Gerrit T. Rietveld, and the most recent architect added to the collection this year, Marco Zanuso.
The brand plans to open its next store in South Africa in Johannesburg in March 2016 with TrueDesign.
