Cassina opens in Brompton

20 November 2012

The leading Italian lifestyle and design brand has opened its first UK showroom in the heart of the Brompton Design District. The showroom, designed by architect Piero Lissoni, is a fantastic addition to the area and is a  must-visit destination for all those interested in exceptional and authentic contemporary design.

The industrial soul of the brand is reflected in the interior; descending from the ceiling lamps by Franco Albini hang from crimson-red fabric cables above a prominent dyed grey, solid oak staircase that unites the two floors. Authentically exposed original brickwork is painted in a warm grey tone, and striking lighting, reminiscent of post-industrial factories, enhance the dyed grey oak flooring in the basement and the beauty of the matt cement of the ground floor. A large aviary-style wire cage at the entrance of the showroom acts as a design studio for meeting clients and is also adaptable as an exhibition space.

“The showroom is really beautiful – comments the architect Piero Lissoni – a perfect London interior, without antics or puns and most of all very cosmopolitan”.
