Revival vs. Innovation

The grand review: These are the trends and highlights of this year's Milan furniture fair.
In the 60’s the 932 model revolutionized the concept of upholstered furniture. Mario Bellini transformed the idea of the traditional armchair by making its padding, four independently produced cushions, the armchair’s structure uniting them with a large belt. Today Cassina brings this historical model back from the archives by renewing its proportions, upholstery and engineering, working in close collaboration with Mario Bellini with respect for the original project’s spirit and authenticity. The armchair’s characteristic belt, in fabric or leather, is not only an elegant aesthetic detail but a functional solution to keep the cushions together in a comfortable embrace. The luxury version of the 932 particularly expresses Cassina’s leather workmanship know-how thanks to the contrast of leathers: the exterior and belt loops are in soft saddle leather while the interior and belt is in natural leather. This version is available in black, taupe and blue.
