Cassina Office

The designer Patricia Urquiola has revised the Cassina site dating back to the 1940s in Meda, in northern Italy, to include a wall covered with vegetation and a cylindrical meeting space enclosed in metal panels.

Urquiola, who was named the brand’s artistic director in 2015, has renewed the old production structure to commemorate Cassina’s 90th anniversary.

Through the renovation, the brand wanted to maintain the existing features of the building to preserve its history. They have modernized the structure while maintaining the existing structure by restructuring it, while a welcome area and new common areas for employees have been added.

"I believe that the key word in this historical and cultural moment is, above all, consistency", said Uriquiola. "This translates into project accuracy, intellectual honesty and a vision for the future."

Following these principles, the architects positioned perforated aluminum curtains at the entrance to the courtyard to create a contemporary atmosphere. For the main common area, Uriquiola chose a mix of pastel-colored armchairs and sofas to create two lounge arrangements on both sides of the space.
Among these stand out well-known brands of collaborators of Cassina, including the LC2 sofas of Le Corbusier, the tables Refolo by Charlotte Perriand and the tables of 1949 by Piero Lissoni.
