About this designer: Gerrit Rietveld
In 1918 Reitveld joined the De Stijl movement which had sprung up around the review of that name founded the year before by Van Doesburg, translating certain laws of composition that had already been expressed by the Cubists. The De Stijl artists also carefully studied the architectonic lesson taught by Frank Lloyd Wright whose influence was widely felt in Europe at the time. Among Reitveld's most important works are the Zig Zag, Utrecht and Red and Blue chairs, all stocked by Aram Store.
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.
