Total freedom in the definition of the concept and perfect agreement for the development of the product. Between Cassina and Philippe Starck there is a happy collaboration that has resulted in a surprising collection, a result presenting both a classic image and a provocative spirit.

Composed and formal when it comes to receiving, the Private collection becomes the perfect domain of transgression in the private and private setting of the house. Day and night mingle, the living room and the boudoir for a collection that goes from the chair to the sofa and the pouf.

The starting point of the collection consists of the binomial formed by the chair and the mini-chair: C et Passion. Taking up the lesson of Jean-Michel Frank, Pierre Chareau and Jacques-Emile Ruhlmann, Philippe Starck draws two compact and enveloping seats, two hulls with sinuous, welcoming and protective profiles. With reasonable dimensions, the two seats are enriched with a precious quilted upholstery, a mosaic of leather that transforms into a dress of a refined elegance.

Worthy of a great stylist and resolute with a technique of traditional as well as innovative sewing, this solution becomes the common thread of the whole collection of upholstered furniture. Starck declines the concept of comfort in a range of solutions that seem to want to satisfy all possible variations and desires. Sitting, lying, lying down, squatting: nothing is forbidden where everything is allowed. Enriched with generous cushions and different types of armrests, the traditional sofa is accompanied by large island elements, real atolls where you can get lost and end up, always well supported by strategic points adjustable height or inclined .

Presenting a very rich variety of components, the collection has only few manufacturing elements. The structures are polished aluminum and all the leather seats are made with large soft and padded surfaces.

Extremely neat design for details, from the corner joint to the inserts that punctuate the metal structures, from the details of the cushions that evoke the finest upholstery to the solutions of the elastic support elements.

Beyond the separations between the day zone and the night zone, between the house and the public places, between the conviviality and the intimacy, Starck drew an elegantly polyvalent collection.
