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.
