CASSINA EXPLORATIONS at the Die Neue Sammlung International Design Museum
Delve into The Secret Archive of Cassina and discover the Refuge Tonneau, a futuristic space shuttle-mountain shelter on show for the first time from 16 - 24 February, 2013
During the Munich Creative Business Week at the Die Neue Sammlung International Design Museum Cassina will reveal some of its best kept secrets from its historical archives. Prototypes of pieces from the 1970’s to the present belonging to the actual collection and past collections, as well as important models for research and development that were never produced before, reveal the authentic spirit of the brand which launched industrial design in Italy in the 1950’s.
From industry to culture, Cassina and Die Neue Sammlung will also exhibit the first complete reconstruction of the Refuge Tonneau designed by Charlotte Perriand and Pierre Jeanneret in 1938. Thanks to Cassina’s reconstruction, the German public will now be able to see the refuge for the first time and witness the visionary intuition and skill of these two great architects in furnishing minimal spaces.
