Pa' 1947

Design Ico Parisi

ORGANIC PROPORTIONS

Based on just a few lines sketched by Ico Parisi, a perfectly proportioned, fluid, organic solid wood console took shape. PA’ 1947 is a sculptural piece that lends itself to tastefully furnishing sumptuous entrance halls or small home office-studios; the ideal designer desk for smart working.

The idea for this console table, designed by Ico Parisi in 1947 for a private client, stemmed from a few lines drawn on a sheet of paper: a horizontal line and two oblique lines to define a structure with almost perfect proportions and an organic appearance. Cassina has respected and enhanced the heart of this project by combining technology with craftsmanship, typical of the company's carpentry workshop; the result is a refined solid wood console table embellished with metal details that adapts to all rooms in the home. Its rectangular plane has four straight notched recesses on the two longest sides, near the extremities, within which, like real joints, the tips of the characteristic divergent "Y" shape upper arms of the legs, available in ash or Canaletto walnut, are screwed and bound two by two to a shaped crossbar. Balance and strength are guaranteed by two oblique turned solid wood elements, joined diagonally to the crossbar and embedded in the structure below.

I Maestri

Ico Parisi

Domenico Parisi, nicknamed Ico, was born in Palermo on the 23rd of September 1916 to Sicilian parents who were living in the Piedmont region. In 1925 the Parisi family moved to Como where Ico earned his diploma as a building inspector in 1936 and completed an apprenticeship at Studio Terragni. The studio gave him the opportunity to get to know and interact with prominent figures of Como's architecture and art world such as Cattaneo, Lingeri, Radice, Rho, Persico and Sartoris.
