"Soriana is a breath of essential relaxation." Tobia Scarpa, 2021.
In the 1960s and 1970s, Cassina was pioneering in the way that it experimented with innovative materials to create new forms and industrially develop its designs with the most advanced solutions. The company advances this avant-garde approach to reflect and reconsider the role of innovation today, listening to the needs of the surrounding society to propose new production methods and materials.
Soriana still today maintains the same design concept and characteristic aesthetic allure while its construction and materials have been completely redeveloped for an eco-friendly version that has the aim of creating a lower environmental impact and a higher level of comfort thanks to the work carried out by Cassina LAB, the collaboration between the Cassina Research and Development Centre and Poli.design at the Milan Polytechnic.
