The idea of developing custom projects originated in 1927, when brothers Cesare and Umberto Cassina founded "Figli di Amedeo Cassina" to create Italy’s finest handcrafted furniture. This winning idea was further encouraged by post-war reconstruction. The company launched its custom interiors business, creating furnishings for hotels, offices and cruise ships. Today, Cassina is a leader in contract furnishings and continues to inscribe its brand on the most exclusive projects designed by renowned international architects.
