About this designer: Frank Lloyd Wright
Frank Lloyd Wright (born Frank Lincoln Wright, June 8, 1867 – April 9, 1959) was an American architect, interior designer, writer and educator, who designed more than 1,000 structures and completed 500 works. Wright believed in designing structures which were in harmony with humanity and its environment, a philosophy he called organic architecture. This philosophy was best exemplified by his design for Fallingwater (1935), which has been called 'the best all-time work of American architecture'. Wright was a leader of the Prairie School movement of architecture, and developed the concept of the Usonian home, his unique vision for urban planning in the United States. His work includes original and innovative examples of many different building types, Wright also designed many of the interior elements of his buildings, such as the furniture and stained glass. Wright was recognized in 1991 by the American Institute of Architects as 'the greatest American architect of all time'.
About this brand: Cassina
Established in 1927, Cassina has been designing the future for over eighty years. During the 50’s the company, founded in Meda (Milan) by Cesare and Umberto Cassina, launched industrial design in Italy. Taking a completely new approach, which saw a shift from handcraftsmanship to serial production, the company began to work side by side with designers. Since then, Cassina has shown a striking inclination for research and the ability to spark multi-participant dialogues between the most talented designers of both the 20th and 21st centuries – Gio Ponti, Vico Magistretti, Mario Bellini, Philippe Starck & Piero Lissoni to name but a few - with quite diverse sensibilities, styles and creative spirits. Cassina holds the worldwide production rights for the iconic Le Corbusier range of furniture designs.
