WILLOW 1

Design Charles Rennie Mackintosh

FINE JOINERY

A masterful modern armchair. An expert re-edition by Cassina starting with the model the Scottish architect donated in 1904 to the “Willow Tea Room” in his native city, Glasgow.

PRODUCTION YEAR

1973

This throne-like armchair is a new iteration of the model that CRM donated, in 1904, to the “Willow Tea Rooms” in Glasgow, his native city. The tall semi- circular back served to separate the entrance area from the tea-room behind it. The back encompasses the seat, illustrating to perfection Mackintosh’s geometric and Art Nouveau style. For Cassina, creating this chair meant marrying advanced technology and the company’s premier carpentry skills. The latter can be seen in the precision needed to assemble the components that make up the elegant, light-weight latticed frame.
