idx090601_books02The story of Cassina, a premier Italian furniture manufacturer, is told quite remarkably in this SKIRA published book. The companion to a Cassina exhibit at the Triennale Design Museum in 2008, “Made in Cassina” takes you on a journey from the very beginnings of the company (when it was just building small sewing tables) to the company’s ascent into the realm of design giants. Remarkable photography, historical documents such as old sketches and original designs, as well as exclusive interviews with many top designers complement the storyline to make this a fascinating piece of literature to spend a rainy afternoon with. Measuring 9.75″ x 1.25″ x 11.25″, this book also displays lovely on your Corbusier coffee table. This is a must have if you own a Cassina piece or are interested in what Italian design is all about. Available at SR Hughes! Give us a call to order or visit the showroom to pick up an in-stock copy.
