or Call to Order

The Dada book­case is a modular container unit open to myriad combi­na­tions. Func­tional details, like the way the units screw together to provide extra stabil­ity, speak to the design’s inspi­ra­tion of children’s build­ing blocks. The units can be slotted together and comple­mented with shelves or drawers. Dada creates a highly orig­i­nal visual impact that is suit­able for any size space. Cassina has produced the book­case since 2015 and has remained faith­ful to the orig­i­nal scope of the 1967 design, thanks to its carpen­ters’ extra­or­di­nary skills, these being partic­u­larly evident in the use of finger-jointing.

Kazuhide Takahama

Japan (1930–2010)

Kazuhide Takahama was born in Kyushu, Japan in 1930 and after completing his studies in Architecture in Tokyo, started working in Kazuo Fuioka's studio. In 1957, he came to Italy to visit the Triennale in Milan where he met Dino Gavina with whom he was to work for many years. By 1963 he moved to Bologna and came into contact with the most active Italian designers of the time. He developed his own well-defined stylistic lexis in a climate of profuse cultural exchanges.

His furniture and lighting designs often feature clean lines and formal restraint. In his works, signs from the oriental culture in which he was trained overlap with features of the Western culture in which he was immersed. He has produced designs for Cassina, Knoll, Gavina, and B&B Italia.
