Cab Office collection,
design Mario Bellini

Cab Lounge armchair,
design Mario Bellini

Created by Mario Bellini in 1977, the Cab seating family has been expanded with Cab Office, reclining swivel chairs with armrests, on five-spoke bases in die-cast aluminium with wheels, in saddle leather available in a range of intense, sophisticated colors (black, Bulgarian red, natural, taupe and brown). Available in the high-back version with a headrest, Cab Office President, and two variants with low backs, Cab Office Conference and Cab Office Conference Maxi with a larger seat.

In 1959 Charlotte Perriand designed the furnishings for the homes of the managers and workers of a mining company on the Atlantic coast of Mauritania. One of the items in the project was the Banquette Mauritanie, a bench composed of a grille of wooden slats attached to a metal base: a construction detail that reveals Cassina’s exceptional woodworking experience. The bench can be used without cushions, with a single two or three seater cushion, or with the addition of cushions for the back. The bench can be equipped with integrated USB sockets.

LC16 Bureau desk,
design Le Corbusier

Working in close contact with the Fondation Le Corbusier, to maintain the utmost respect for the original design, Cassina has also reissued the LC16 Bureau desk, expanding its proportions and making it possible to equip with integrated power sources, in a monochrome version with a natural oak structure or – like the original – with a glossy red lacquered top.

Bureau Boomerang desk, design Charlotte Perriand

The Bureau Boomerang desk was designed in 1938 by Charlotte Perriand when the architect designed the furniture for the office of Jean-Richard Bloch, an intellectual, writer, co-editor of the newspaper Ce Soir and founder of the Committee of Anti-Fascist Intellectuals. Today it comes with new finishes in oak-stained or black-stained ash or natural canaletto walnut, in a version that can be equipped with integrated power sources, and can be combined with the drawer unit of the LC10 Bureau La Semaine à Paris desk by Le CorbusierPierre JeanneretCharlotte Perriand, adapted in 1930 by Charlotte Perriand.

Designed by Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec, the Cotone Slim bench completes the range of offerings for public spaces. In anodized or matte graphite coated extruded aluminium, it comes with leather or fabric upholstery, and can be equipped  with integrated power sources and USB sockets. Like all the products in the Cassina iMaestri collection, to guarantee authenticity the pieces bear the logo of the collection, the signature of the designer and the numbering of the series.

Finally, Cassina offers industry professionals a series of digital tools on its website, including: the Cassina Pro catalogue; a pCon configurator; 2D and 3D technical drawings; technical product sheets; product certifications; and a photo-realistic product configurator.
