The Cassina Perspective Goes Outdoor
We are all craving some fresh air and looking forward to spending quality time in the sunshine. The Cassina Outdoor Collection unites the great classics with new designs to create complete atmospheres designed for the open air. Products are characterised by their attention to detail, quality, comfort and the unmistakable style of Cassina that extends its vision of the home from the indoors to terraces, gardens and public spaces. Following the launch of Patricia Urquiola's love-bed Trampoline, the range has now expanded to include a new armchair, a two-seater sofa and three combinable modules to create welcoming and extremely comfortable compositions for the outdoors.
Trampoline is characterised by rounded, sinuous shapes and the playful use of handwoven polypropylene and nylon rope which becomes a functional decoration to form the seat’s backrest. Combine light and simple colours with the geometrical and floral patterns of the cushions, available with optional fringes just like the seat cushions, to create the perfect outdoor setting. Trampoline also has an environmentally friendly approach. Thanks to the research carried out by Cassina LAB, the collaboration between the Cassina Research and Development Centre and Poli.design at the Milan Polytechnic, the collection features sustainable materials that are completely made in Italy. The panels under the seat are produced in RFM®, a recycled fibreglass finished by hand and 100% recyclable, and the cushions are padded with polyurethane foam wrapped in a 100% recycled wadding made from PET.
A new outdoor upholstery made from recycled plastic is also available. The Futura fabric, exclusively developed by Reviva for Cassina, is a fully recyclable polyester yarn made from 100% recycled PET. The Cassina Outdoor Collection also proposes unique designs by Rodolfo Dordoni and Philippe Starck for the living and dining areas as well as accessories, lighting and rugs, especially designed for the outdoors, to create warm and welcoming atmospheres.
