In the book ‘Cassina as Seen by Karl’, iconic chairs, tables, and chaise-lounges are showcased through the eyes of Karl Lagerfeld. Marking his first ever photographic project, the collection features a series of tenderly-chosen images, that expresses Lagerfelds’ views on the work of Modernist legends. In Euro Creations‘ latest exhibition, the photographic mise-en-scène is brought to life through a display of Cassina’s masterpieces featured in the book. Through the exhibition, Thai-based design enthusiasts get the chance to experience design through the perspective of Karl Lagerfeld first-hand.
The ‘Cassina as Seen by Karl’ Exhibition: What to Expect?
Upon entering the exhibition, guests are greeted by large prints of photos taken from the book, hanging on the walls. The highlight, however, are the pieces on display — showcased in the exhibition are extremely limited edition furnitishing items found in the book.
Among them, guests will find the likes of the LC2 armchair — a stunning industrial production which only Cassina alone is licensed to produce. The LC2 is joined by other works of art, including the one-of-a-kind Gender armchair with Ottoman and the iconic Tre Pezzi Wool Armchair, all of which are available for purchase until the end of the December 2019.
Also on show are several masterpiece-esque designs, including the 699 Supperleggera, which symbolises perfection and a balance between solidity and lightness. Spectators can also marvel at the LC7 Armchair, designed by Charlotte Perriand in 1927, as well as a series fine-art furniture such as the Auckland swivel armchair — adjustable in 8 different heights, this item works as both a piece of art, and a functional everyday piece.
