Founded in 1993 by Franco Cassina and Carlo Forcolinio, Nemo-Cassina Lighting is today a reference point in the Italian and international landscape of high-design lighting. The collection Nemo-Cassina Lighting includes lamps which light every kind of space, either residential or commercial. For this reason, Nemo-Cassina Lighting has learned to select the lighting sources with particular attention, putting always a constant attention to research, experimentation and technological innovation. From the conceptual simplicity of the first lamp, Ursa, designed by Vico Magistretti in 1993, to the sinuous lines of the last creation of Studio Foster, the ideas of Nemo-Cassina Lighting will go beyond the limits of fashion and of time.
The catalogue includes mainly two collections: the “Contemporaries” and the “Classics”. The collection “Contemporaries”, which includes articles with high value, is signed by international artists, such as Giancarlo Fassina, Carlo Forcolini, Jehs + Laub, Javier Mariscal, Ilaria Marelli, Agatha Ruiz de la Prada, the Studio Foster+Partners and Hannes Wettstein. Nemo – Cassina Lighting completes this collection with a new edition of the icons of the lighting objects of the ‘60es and the ‘70es: these belong to the collection “Classics” of the catalogue, with designers, such as Vico Magistretti, Franco Albini, Kazuhide Takahama, Man Ray, Le Corbusier and Charlotte Perriand.
With the joining of the group Cassina in the group Poltrona Frau, the brand Nemo is following a path which has lead it to the role of “Official lighting provider” of the group Poltrona Frau.
Charles-Eduard Jeanneret-Gris, who was better known as Le Corbusier, is born in 1887 in La Chaux-de-Fonds in Switzerland. He was a Swiss-French architect, designer, urban planner and it is considered as one of the pioneer of what is called “Modern architecture”. He studied under Charles L´Eplattenier first at “Ecole Industrielle” and then at “Ecole d´Art”. After his studies, he travelled around Europe, visiting places as Turkey, Romany, Greece and Italy (especially Rome, Florence and Pompey). 1922 he moved to Paris where he opened his own practice, together with his cousin Pierre Jeanneret. Le Corbusier explicity used the golden ratio in his Modulor system for the scale of architectural proportion, but he also based this system on human measurements, Fibonacci numbers, and the double unit. In other words, his design-system is marked by the use of rational systems, modules and simple forms, according to the principles of “rationalism”. Among the numerous urban planning projects that he developed, we’d like to remember those in Algeri (1930),Sap Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, Buenos Aires, Barcelona (1933), Geneva, Stockholm, Antwerp and Nemor (1934). In 1946 Le Corbusier moved to New York, where his genius was finally recognized. In these years, he completed the idea “Unitè d’Habitation”, at which he has been working for almost 15 years. In 1951 he had been to India for the first time in order to create the urban plan of the new capital. In 1952 he received the Legion of Honor during the inauguration of the first “Unitè d’Habitation” in Marseille, which was followed by the inauguration of the Chapel of Notre-Dame du Haut and by the famous Capitol of Chandigarh.
