About

"The priceless gift that my father made for me with his own hands when I was a child has become a beloved inheritance and the icon of my work" Adele Cassina

"Zarina Divanetto" sofa originates from the soft and embracing little armchair of the same name, a prototype of seating beyond time and design, made by Cesare Cassina for his daughter Adele. Design pioneer during 1950s, Cesare Cassina created this little armchair during winter in 1944 and gave it to his daughter as a Christmas gift. After Adele has grown up and established the design company with the same name, she re-edited the concept of Zarina creating a collection including, besides the exact replica of the original little armchair, three different armchairs, a sofa and an ottoman.

Iconic two-seat sofa, designed and manufactured by Adele-C, featuring a wooden frame with polyurethane padding in differing densities, crushproof goose-feather cushion seats with polyurethane inserts, available in two different aniline leather covered versions: black aniline leather cover with brownish profiles or brownish aniline leather cover with black profiles. Indoor use only.

Cesare Cassina (Meda, 1909-1979) was a pioneer of Italian design in the furniture industry, an enlightened entrepreneur and a recognized international leader in the production of chairs, armchairs and sofas. In 1927, along with his brother Umberto, he established a craft furniture manufacturer, which gained a great prestige over time thanks to the cooperation of well known Italian architects and designers such as Giò Ponti, Carlo and Tobia Scarpa, Marco Zanuso, Franco Albini and Vico Magistretti. In 1965 he began to realize the Collection of Masters with a huge success, acquiring the rights for iconic pieces co-designed by Le Corbusier, Pierre Jeanneret and Charlotte Perriand. Such collection was widened in 1968 with the acquisition from Bauhaus-Archiv in Berlin of the reproduction rights for some of the Bauhaus objects. In 1971-72 pieces of design by Gerrit Rietveld, Frank Lloyd Wright and Charles Rennie Mackintosh were added. The Collection of Masters continued in 1983 with the re-edition of furniture by Erik Gunner Asplund, later the acquisition from the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation of rights of reproduction (1986) of furniture by the American architect came, including the Barrel chair (1937), and, finally, in 2004 also furniture by Charlotte Perriand was included. In 1972 the very influential exhibition at New York MoMA, called "Italy: the New Domestic Landscape", curated by Emilio Ambasz, was co-sponsored by Cassina.
