It was 1965 when Hasan Kasan laid the foundation for what would grow into CASA when he established a boutique upholstery firm in Ankara, Turkey’s vibrant capital. The business flourished, and in 1992 Kasan inaugurated the CASA brand, swiftly recognized as a pioneer in the Turkish furniture industry. In less than a decade, Kasan and his two sons expanded the newly named company from a modest-scale family business into an industry trendsetter. Now, from its state-of-the-art, 35,000-square-meter facility, CASA’s world-class team creates the very best in contemporary furniture for retail markets and institutional clients in over two-dozen countries. CASA has developed into one of Europe’s leading furniture makers by never forgetting what made Kasan’s business a success in the first place: Vigorous dedication to quality manufacture. Spirited commitment to innovative design. Unsurpassed devotion to customer service. These remain the touchstones of the CASA ethic. No matter how many markets the company enters, no matter how broad its sweep, CASA still understands the unmistakable feel, the ineluctable sensation of handmade, tailor-made, custom-made goods. Employing the highest quality wood and cloth and leather and steel, CASA delivers that bespoke touch with every article of furniture that bears its name. CASA is proud and excited to join forces with renowned Italian architect and industrial designer Mauro Lipparini to introduce Italia, a set of three entirely original collections—Contemporary, Timeless, and Luxury Chic—fashioned to make an impact not only in 2015, but years beyond. Rooted in the spare forms and clear, powerful lines that are the defining features of Italian minimalism, his work is imbued with a spirit of joy, a buoyant sense of pleasure and possibility. Freely employing bold colors, organic textures, and imaginative visual concepts, Lipparini broadens the palette of classic minimalism, bringing the immediacy and strength of the time-honored aesthetic into an exhilarating new era. For CASA, Lipparini has conceived a superior set of furniture pieces that acknowledge the company’s traditions while conveying its long-successful vision forward into the dynamic now. Strong spans, welcoming volumes, and inviting textures define these memorable collections. From beginning to end, the collaboration of CASA and Lipparini exemplifies an approach to design in which livability and grace are forever one.
