The separation of structural elements and the study of new materials and shapes can also be identified in the Utrecht armchair produced exclusively by Cassina since 1988.
Initially designed in 1935 for the Metz&co department store for widespread distribution, this piece represents the Rietveld’s decision to adopt a more ‘market-oriented’ approach to comfort and relaxation.
As part of the MutAzioni project, Cassina continues in this direction, responding to the growing need to satisfy individual preferences and customised projects, by introducing an additional zig-zag stitch, five new colour options for the thread, and a wide range of contemporary fabrics.
