From a symbol to
Each style has its mark of distinction in buildings, decorations, and objects. Mastery of these elements allows Enrico Cassina to create handles with well-defined features that clearly express a specific historical period. This precision is far more important in times like ours, which show a marked tendency toward mixing.
Each Enrico Cassina object is the essence of an artistic movement. This purity enables great freedom of use, from furnishing projects that faithfully recreate a historical style to creative fusions that need pure and recognisable components.
