50 Years of iMaestri

Introduced 50 years ago, this collection had its origins in a process begun in 1965 with the mass production of the first four models designed by Le Corbusier, Pierre Jeanneret and Charlotte Perriand.

Over time, the collection has amassed some of the most iconic pieces of 20th century furniture with works by Gerrit Thomas Rietveld, Charles Rennie Mackintosh, Erik Gunnar Asplund, Charlotte Perriand, Franco Albini, Le Corbusier, Marco Zanuso, Ico Parisi and Giacomo Balla.
