  • Esteemed Italian furniture brand Cassina pay homage to designers Le Corbusier, Pierre Jeanneret and Charlotte Perriand by restoring the historic french names of iconic pieces.

    As part of their ongoing campaign for design authenticity and to protect long-standing relationships with key designers, Cassina has made the decision to restore the original names of more than 60 pieces within the Le Corbusier, Pierre Jeanneret and Charlotte Perriand collection.

    Cassina’s passion for honouring the great icons of design began in 1964 when the company acquired the exclusive worldwide rights to serially produce the first four models designed by Le Corbusier, Pierre Jeanneret and Charlotte Perriand. In the years since Cassina has remained the only company authorised to produce their iconic designs.

    Working in close collaboration with the designers’ heirs, and under the guidance of leading experts in the history of design, the company is adapting the collection to reflect its French origins. The ‘new’ names are not so much a rendition, but rather a reinstatement of the past; accurately paying tribute to the three figures and their lasting influence on the design community.
