Milan preview: Luca Nichetto for Cassina

Monday, 5 March 2012

Italian design brand Cassina will launch a new sofa by Luca Nichetto at the Salone this April. Called La Mise, the sofa is the first collaboration between the brand and Nichetto, who has also recently launched new products for David Design and Italesse.

La Mise features draped upholstery, arranged over the sofa's structure in one single piece, that has as much in common with the world of haute couture as it does with furniture. It has been compared by Cassina to "an informal dress". Subscribers can see more furniture moving beyond couture in our trend report from Stockholm Furniture Fair last month.

La Mise will be available as an armchair, two-seater or three-seater sofa. Read all of our Milan 2012 previews here.
