This year, Cassina has developed its first tableware collection. The designs are unsurprisingly iconic, developed from a 1951 collection by design icon Le Corbusier, in collaboration with Richard Ginori and the Le Corbusier Foundation.
This dinner service was originally produced for the Prunier restaurant in London. On the wall of a private room of the restaurant, Madame Prunier had hung the Les Mains tapestry that Le Corbusier had designed in 1951. In 1961, she decided to commission Le Corbusier to design a dinner service for the restaurant with the same motif of the intertwined hands that can be found on the lower part of the tapestry. Le Corbusier carefully made some colour variations for this dinner set, including a plum tone for the
coloured part on which the three entwined hands drawn with a thin black line come together. Le Corbusier himself used these same dishes in which he combined, as he himself said, quality and taste “the taste of shape”.
