Cassina unveiled additions to its existing collection, with archive designs by Le Corbusier and Perriandjoining new products by Rodolfo Dordoni, Philippe Starck and Patricia Urquiola.
Perriand’s Doron Hotel armchair was designed in 1947 for a winter sports resort in the French Alps. The new outdoor version was developed by Cassinain close collaboration with her daughter Pernette Perriand Barsac.
According to Barbara Lehmann, head of the Cassina’shistorical archives, the company decided to develop both indoor and outdoor versions of the chair as its design is suited to use in either context.
Also new to the Cassina outdoor collection is Patricia Urquiola‘s Trampoline furniture, described by the company as “a love bed with a strong personality that becomes the hero of any outdoor space”. A set of three large cushions upholstered in water-repellent fabric forms the backrest. Other cushions can be added to create a playful and comfortable environment for lounging.
The Cassina Perspective Goes Outdoor also includes a sofa, armchair and coffee table by Philippe Starck.
