In the fiery cultural excitement of the Second World War, Cesare Cassina met Vico Magistretti, to whom entrusted the creative direction of the company. In these years, the Architect designed the famous series of Carimate seats along with other iconic pieces such as Nuvola Rossa bookcase and 676 Maralunga sofa. By purchasing the rights to reproduce iconic pieces of the design history, the company lived a great phase of innovation ad growth.
The prestigious collection I Maestri reworked masterpieces of Frank Lloyd Wright, Le Corbusier, Gerrit Thomas Rietveld and Charles Rennie Mackintosh. The LC series marked Cassina’s greatest success. The brand produced the LC4 chaise longue, the LC7 chair, the LC1 armchair and the LC2 and LC3 sofas designed by the Swiss Architect Le Corbusier along with Charlotte Perriand and Pierre Jeanneret.
