Owing to its alleged "revolutionary" nature and the radical look it acquired from its "purist" form. In time, however, it won the recognition it deserved and is still widely admired.

Le Corbusier, whose birth name was Charles-Edouard Jeanneret was not only a pioneer of modern architecture but also an architect, designer, urbanist and writer. He was born in Switzerland and became a French citizen in 1930. His career spanned five decades and his buildings spanned Europe, India and America. He was an early proponent of modern high rise design and had a personal dedication to providing better living conditions for the residents of crowded cities.
The Cassina company was created by the brothers Cesare and Umberto Cassina in 1927 in Meda Brianza, (Northern Italy). In 1964 the Cassina Masters Collection was born, with the acquisition of product rights of Le Corbusier, Pierre Jeanneret, and Charlotte Perriand. Today Cassina is the exclusive worldwide licensee of the Le Corbusier designs. The "Cassina I Maestri" collection was widened in 1968 with the acquisition of reproduction rights to some of the Bauhaus objects. And in 1971 the designs of Gerrit Rietveld, Frank Lloyd Wright, and of Charles Rennie Mackintosh in 1972. The collection continued still, with the re-issue in 1983 of furniture by Erik Gunner Asplund rights to reproduce furniture by Frank Lloyd Wright, including the Barrel chair, and in 2004 furniture by Charlotte Perriand.
