Italian furniture brand Cassina will soon be distributed in Australia by Mobilia, with ‘The Cassina Perspective’ representing a collection that brings together classic furniture designs and new, contemporary pieces.
Cassina’s repertoire features the authentic reissues of some of the design world’s most iconic pieces by architects and designers including Le Corbusier, Pierre Jeanneret and Charlotte Perriand, Gerrit T. Rietveld, Frank Lloyd Wright and Franco Albini. The company’s contemporary design pedigree is also impeccable – since 2015, Patricia Urquiola has been the artistic director, while designers such as Rodolfo Dordoni and Philippe Starck have had longstanding collaborations with Cassina and recent projects with the Bouroullec brothers have been a highlight.
Mobilia was founded over 45 years ago in Perth, specialising in high-end designer furniture, lighting, flooring and architectural products sourced from around the world. Cassina will join a stable of leading international brands including Kettal, Poltrona Frau, Moroso and CC Tapis found at the Mobilia showroom in Perth and the first Melbourne store, opening later this year.
‘The Cassina Perspective’ represents a collection that brings together classic furniture designs and new, contemporary pieces.
Mobilia Director Salvatore Fazzar says “Cassina is a very special brand that effortlessly mixes iconic furniture pieces, steeped in over 100 years’ history, with contemporary designs by top industry visionaries. This unique approach means you can freshly furnish a space with Cassina pieces and feel as though they have been collected over time.”
