Located on Via Durini, is the famous contemporary furniture showroom, Cassina Milano. Cassina, a modern, cosmopolitan furniture brand, was started by two brothers, Cesare and Umberto Cassina in Meda, Lombardy, in 1927. The company rose to prominence in 1964 when it released the “Great Masters Collection,” which allowed for the collaboration of Cassina with the finest designers, including Le Corbusier, Charlotte Perriand, and Pierre Jeanneret. Cassina’s iconic 1973 Maralunga Sofa by Vico Magistretti which has been an inspiration to designers everywhere, was brought back by Cassina Milano in 2013. For over ninety years, the company’s motto has been based around catering to the needs of their clients, down to every last detail. Since opening in Milan, the showrooms have been interpreted by famous designers including Mario Bellini, Vico Magistretti and Achille Castiglioni. If you are interested in purchasing luxurious, cosmopolitan furniture, Cassina Milano is the ideal place to begin your search.
