BIRTH­DAY PARTY

Malaysia Tatler Homes - - STYLE -

To cel­e­brate its 90th an­niver­sary, Cassina has launched the C90 pro­gramme. This en­com­passes a con­tem­po­rary re­tail ex­pe­ri­ence de­vel­oped by art di­rec­tor Pa­tri­cia Urquiola, the ren­o­va­tion of its Mi­lan show­room and rein­ter­pre­ta­tions of con­tem­po­rary de­sign clas­sics dubbed Mu­tazioni (mean­ing ‘mu­ta­tions’). These pieces in­clude Ger­rit Ri­etveld’s Utrecht arm­chair (1935), Carlo Scarpa’s Doge ta­ble (1968), and Piero Lis­soni’s Met sofa sys­tem (1990). For the 2017 Mi­lan Fur­ni­ture Fair, Urquiola also cre­ated a spe­cial Cassina 9.0 in­stal­la­tion at the Fon­dazione Gian­gia­como Fel­trinelli to cel­e­brate the brand’s nine decades and mark the re­lease of the brand’s com­mem­o­ra­tive 352-page mono­graph This Will Be the Place. The book will be avail­able world­wide in au­tumn 2017.
