Cassina, today part of the Poltrona Frau Group, is one of the oldest companies in Italian design, with a history and very special designers that place it among the most interesting companies for research, quality, and rigor. It all started in Meda, in Brianza, in 1927 with the brothers Cesare and Umberto Cassina. But we must wait for the great crisis to pass, and then the war, for the leap in scale and quality. The opportunity to move from the laboratory to the industry arrives with the commissions for the first large cruise ships. For the transatlantic Andrea Doria, the company produces 500 pieces, and creates magnificent environments, the reading room of the first class, the library, the dining room. It is in the work for the ships that Cassina meet Gio Ponti, the architect who will mark the turning point of the company.
