or Call to Order

Cassi­na’s Wood­line Lounge Chair has a strik­ing, rigor­ous design, which is the result of the research by Marco Zanuso on how to anchor a seat on a wood frame. The wood frame is based on the geom­e­try of the circle, which provides the chair’s elegant formal aesthetic. Avail­able in an iconic edition with a clear-varnished walnut frame, with the back panel in natural saddle leather, and the cush­ions in tobacco-colored leather. 

Zanuso started work on this chair with his entry in an inter­na­tional design compe­ti­tion orga­nized by the Museum of Modern Art in New York in 1949. He returned to it in 1964, harness­ing Arflex’s advanced technology. 


Marco Zanuso

Italy (1916–2001)

Architect, designer and university lecturer, Marco Zanuso was one of the leading interpreters of the Modern Movement.

Trained at the Polytechnic University of Milan and, in the immediate post-war years, co-editor of the Domus magazine with Ernesto N. Rogers, he was awarded the Medaglia d’oro and the Gran Premio at the Milan Triennale on a number of occasions (VIII, IX, X, XI and XIII editions), and won ve Compassi d’Oro between 1956 and 1985.

Zanuso was one of the first designers in Italy to take an interest in product industrialization, going beyond aesthetics to incorporate technological, industrial, and communication variables.
