Rennie Mackintosh Willow Chair
This Willow Chair is a classic. Beautiful to look at, it would make a stunning feature for a hallway or bedroom, it is also functional - comfortable and has a storage box under the seat. The throne-like armchair was designed by Charles Rennie Mackintosh in 1904 and donated to the “Willow Tea Rooms” in Glasgow, his native city.
The tall semi-circular back served to separate the entrance area from the tea-room behind it. The back encompasses the seat, illustrating to perfection Mackintosh’s geometric and Art Nouveau style. The design was relaunched in 1973 to be manufactured by Cassina in Italy who held the CRM trade mark.
For Cassina, creating this chair meant marrying advanced technology and the company’s premier carpentry skills. The latter can be seen in the precision needed to assemble the components that make up the elegant, light-weight latticed frame. Each chair has its own unique serial number (see photo).

The Design / Brand
The "Amedeo Cassina" company was created by the brothers Cesare and Umberto Cassina in 1927 in Meda, Brianza, (Northern Italy). After the war, Cassina continued to expand in size and fame, with products which covered a broad range of furniture including: chairs, armchairs, tables, sofas and beds.
In 1964 the "Cassina I Maestri" (Cassina Masters) Collection was born, with the acquisition of the rights to products designed by Le Corbusier, Pierre Jeanneret and Charlotte Perriand, the most important names of 20th century design. Today Cassina is the exclusive worldwide licensee of the Le Corbusier designs.
