The famous Italian design firm opens its first monobrand showroom in Belgium, in collaboration with local partner Dominique Rigo. The space of about 800 m2 on three levels is located in the prestigious zone of Avenue Louise. The Belgian identity is immediately evident in the architecture of the building, 15 meters in height, built towards the end of the 1800s. For the opening of the showroom Cassina presents a European exclusive, Authentic Materials. Charlotte Perriand, Le Corbusier, Pierre Jeanneret and Gerrit T. Rietveld, four great masters of modern design, who share a focus on the sensorial charm of natural materials. Emblematic works include: the LC 11-P table by Le Corbusier, Pierre Jeanneret and Charlotte Perriand, in the version with marble top found in the Paris apartment of Le Corbusier; the iconic Zig Zag chair by Rietveld in a colored version; and the two stools, Tabouret Méribel and Tabouret Berger, by Perriand, that offer a refined interpretation of the typical milking stool and express the designer’s great love of the mountains. All the projects bring out the natural beauty of materials, and narrate the tradition and capacity of Cassina in working with wood. www.cassina.com.
