Red Hot From Milano … LC Series Outdoor

April 30, 2011

“Observed as an ensemble, this first Cassina Outdoor collection set on a lawn, a beach, under a patio exudes a regal air, an aristocratic family portrait en plein air. The collection consists of six pieces that are all part of the history of contemporary design and architecture. Each piece with its strong personality, features a story and an attitude. One way to occupy space, to define it around yourself, in such a strangely natural way yet at the same time both high and noble. An extraordinary ability to overcome time both in body and spirit. Highlighting the essence of a thought at the apex of a highly refined architectural journey, next to the perfection of natural forms, living, changing, highly mobile, unpredictable, eternal. Nature. Culture. Side by side, showing each other respect, vitality, dialogue, communion.”

Extreme outdoor durability in stainless steel, technical fabrics, and naturally resiliant wood.  Extreme elegance for outdoor living.  Only from Cassina. View the complete LC Outdoor collection of sofas, chairs, tables, and chaise by clicking below:

Corbu in Cages?

April 14, 2011

Outdoor spaces are truly special around this city … whether a park or a private courtyard, Milan always amazes me in this respect.  But, when I arrived for my 11 o’clock appointment at the Milano Design Village … I was truly surprised!  During Salone, this cavernous warehouse space is especially outfitted to show the new ideas from Poltrona Frau, Cappellini, and Cassina.  However, I never expected this:

Charlotte Perriand’s wooden outdoor chaise lounge inside the cage mirrors the indoor LC4 outside.  There were also LC3 chairs, LC10 dining and coffee tables, and even the LC1 “sling” chair all re-designed for outdoor use!  It even rained inside the cage to show that these pieces are made to withstand outdoor elements!  I was enthralled and loved the playful nature of it all!  Please … download the iPhone or iPad app for Cassina and check out the “Events” section to see more from the Milano Design Village.

The other unexpected treasure for me today was Spazio Rossana Orlandi.  This is a Milanese design legend … and after many years travelling here … it was my first visit.

 

The courtyard was full of people enjoying the food, drink, atmosphere, and design … the space had great energy and there were treasures everywhere … inside and out.  There was this beautiful Bocci chandelier:

But the thing that just took my breath away was this life-sized needlepoint horse and rider from Frederique Morrel:

A great way to cap the day walking around the city!

Have a seat. Le Corbusier would have wanted you to.

Cassina Le Corbusier Installation at Philbrook Museum of Art

Cassina Le Corbusier Installation at Philbrook Museum of Art

Have a seat.  Le Corbusier would have wanted you to.

In 1929, there were some new concepts of furniture on display at the important Salon d’Automne exhibition in Paris.  They were designed by Charles-Edouard Jeanneret, better known as Le Corbusier.  Visitors to the exhibition were perplexed and somewhat shocked, for the furniture seemed to have but one aim in mind – function.  To Le Corbusier: what is a chair if not an object that carries out the function for which it was intended, the support of the human form in a semi-erect position?  He was not interested in decoration or ornamentation, and you can see here that the basic components of his chairs are organized around the simplest possible support framework, a metal tube.  Brilliant!  In 1929, people were baffled by Le Corbusier.  Today, his creations are in the permanent collections of institutions such as MoMA and licensed reproductions are at home, work, and play all over the world.

Now it’s easier than ever to own a Le Corbusier chair.  SR Hughes is excited to announce that Cassina is offering 15% off all Corbusier designs from Oct 6th – 18th, 2011.
