Cassina re-releases four mid-century modern classics

A recreation of original La Corbusier designs, Cassina has brought the mid-century modernist’s furniture pieces back to life. Originally designed in 1952 in the South of France, the designer Charles-Edouard Le Corbusier was inspired by such things as old whiskey crates found abandoned on dusty roadsides, typical of the Le Corbusier’s famed interest in objet trouvé. Known for his obsession with efficiency, and that no unnecessary line should ever exist, the designer took the simplicity of something you’d come across discarded and created something sleek, modern and timeless. Cassina is the only furniture company that hold rights to the Le Corbusier drawings and blueprints, so they’ve recreated the beautiful 4 piece “I Maestri Collection” consisting of boxes, tables and writing desks. Definitively classic.

A couple more pieces in the Cassina I Maestri Collection after the Jump…
