Leather > Extra'Grigio Caldo' Grey. Cassina: Italian masterpieces: Since 1927. C assina was founded in 1927 in the northern Italian region of Brianza. During the mid-50's Cassina engaged the talents of architects such as Gio Ponti, Afra and Tobia Scarpa, Mario Bellini and Vico Magistretti for design collaboration. Its products have become part of the history of Italian design. In order to broaden the appeal of the Cassina Collection, Franco Cassina initiated a visionary collaboration between Le Corbusier and Cassina. Building upon the Le Corbusier license, the company launched "I Maestri" (Masters Collection). Contemporary architects and designers continue the company's commitment to the landmarks of modern furniture design. The list of designers reads like a brief history of design. The bold success of the company's taste, technology and creativity has made Italy famous around the world and has contributed to the popularity of Made in Italy on international markets. Cassina are committed to the Italian design ideals of craftsmanship and quality. It is a true fusion of industrial technology with artisan "Italian" manufacturing.
With its surprising architecture, the M10 armchair hides a conceptual challenge. The seat hanging onto an inverted Y creates a cantilevered effect and a spectacular and delicate balance: a distinctive feature replicated in the P22 armchair. Slender legs in solid ash and a comfortable seat are supported by an inner metal body that serves as the core of the entire structure.The M10 is a hanging chair that illustrates with elegance the encounter between innovation and tradition. Designed by Patrick Norguet for Cassina, the light and balanced design of the Cassina 397 M10 armchair is seemingly simple and inviting. Suspended on an upside down Y shape, a distinctive sign for Patrick Norguet's work, which follows on from the P22 armchair; the skilful use of wood enhances Cassina's long held heritage in carpentry. The challenge to create the impression of an unstable position is something Patrick Norguet and Cassina R&D department have worked upon with the M10 armchair, researching materials and technical characteristics to guarantee maximum stability and durability. The interior details have been hand-crafted in Italy in the traditional way. Frame in aluminium alloy, covered with CFC-free foam with the seat and back upholstered in leather that is removable. Legs in stained black ashwood. His armchair is all about comfort. Everything has been carefully designed with this in mind. Not only is it a stunningly beautiful statement piece of elegant contemporary furniture, but it is supremely supportive and comfortable. As soon as you see, touch and then sink into the buttery soft upholstered leather you just know that this is something quite special indeed.
The craftsmanship and quality of this armchair really is something to behold, and you have to see and experience it with your own eyes to believe just how stunning it is. It is just the most wonderful place to be. Everything you would expect from a sublime piece of sartorial furniture from Cassina who have been creating Italian masterpieces since 1927.

We are an Italian family who have been immersed in interior design and the curation and collection of 20th and 21st century furniture, lighting, art, objet d'art and interior decoration for three generations. We offer a complete sourcing service for any rare and wonderful piece that you may be looking for, from an iconic mid-century modern piece up to current collections, as well as a comprehensive interior design service from one room to your whole home, and our Master Upholsterers and French Polishers can restore, upholster and repair any piece of furniture that you may already have. We also take furniture to sell on your behalf on a commission basis. The undisputed motherland for art-level furniture. It's the same country responsible for Da Vinci's paintings, Armani's tailoring and Sophia Lauren's bodaciousness. Is it genetics or something in the Chianti that makes Italians such masters of all things beautiful? Not only is there rich history evident in their bold and brash creations, but we can also feel the drama and bravado of their culture and personalities.
It's no wonder beauty seeps into their every pore and then gets re-contectualised in the wondrous things they make. The work of the men and women in the pieces we painstakingly curate feels especially relevant right now. We methodically drain the mid-century modern and contemporary wells dry (Knoll and Herman Miller especially have been tapped out), and yet, sitting over there in the corner, cooling sipping Negronis and having a smoke, are Ponti, Aulenti, Sottsass, Colombo, Albini, Bellini, Mari, Mollino, Scarpa, Zanuso, Lissoni, Citterio and many, many others.
There is a great treasure trove to be discovered. Whereas the American stuff is in our opinion staid and specifically designed to work for everyone, everywhere, the Italian creations are unique, expressive and outrageous. The production output from these designers is minuscule compared with that of the U.A and other larger producers, Having a piece of Italian design is akin to having a piece of art or sculpture in your house-at an affordable price. As the world turns politically to the right, the work you'll find here is decidedly left-leaning, as radical and daring as the wild characters who created it. To own and display this work is a statement and declaration of individualism. For International Buyers we accept an IBAN transfer into our business bank account.
