Cassina, founded in 1927 in northern Italy's Brianza region, has been a pioneer in contemporary furniture design and manufacturing. In the 1950s, they collaborated with renowned architects like Gio Ponti, Afra and Tobia Scarpa, Mario Bellini, and Vico Magistretti, leading to modern classics in the Cassina I Maestri Collection by 20th-century masters and contemporary designs by European talents.

Franco Cassina's visionary partnership with Le Corbusier expanded the Cassina Collection, resulting in the I Maestri Collection. This collection features iconic designs by Le Corbusier, Charles Rennie Mackintosh, Gerrit Rietveld, E. Gunnar Asplund, Charlotte Perriand, Franco Albini, and more.
