THE ICONS FROM THE CASSINA IMAESTRI COLLECTION ON STAGE AT NEOCON 2024

 

 

For NeoCon 2024, from the 10th to the 12th of June in Chicago, Galaxy by Charles and Ray Eames lights up the Haworth Showroom. Officially presented in the Cassina 2024 Collection, this pendant lamp has never been in production until it became part of the lighting catalogue of the company, which developed the model in close collaboration with the Eames Office, through an in-depth work of research.

 

During the days of the exhibition, the space also prepares to welcome Eames Demetrios, grandson of Charles and Ray and Director of the Eames Office.

 

In parallel, on the 11th of June the Cassina Space at Luminaire Chicago, consolidated partner of the company, pays homage to the Cassina iMaestri Collection by hosting an exclusive presentation of the book ‘Echoes, Cassina. 50 Years of iMaestri’, published by Rizzoli and edited by Ivan Mietton, which marked the celebrations for the 50th anniversary of the Cassina iMaestri Collection in 2023.
