卡尔·拉格菲尔德: an authentic eye on the cassina collections

for the first time in his career, karl lagerfeld has collaborated with a furniture company, cassina, creating a series of photographs 
which celebrate the italian brand's 85 years of existence. on this occasion, the fashion designer selected a grouping of historic and 
contemporary pieces from the cassina archive, including works by le corbusier, charlotte perriand, gerrit t. rietveld, charles rennie mackintosh,
gio ponti, vico magistretti, jean-marie massaud, and piero lissoni, to name a few, and captured 'portraits' of them-- 
his own personal interpretations of the furniture objects, positioning them in conversation, focusing on details, arranging them to 
form graphic compositions… expressing them as unusual and mysterious, without betraying their original identity. the prints, 
whose production have been executed by gerhard steidl, are on show in the 'an authentic eye' exhibition at cassina's showroom in paris 
until sunday, march 10th 2013.

'I had never 'worked' on this kind of project. to visually reinterpret examples of perfect design is completely new for me, and therefore stimulating, 
exciting even. I am also a fan of the cassina 'productions' (...). my first 'order' was the famous chaise-longue by le corbusier, pierre jeanneret 
and charlotte perriand in the 60’s…' - karl lagerfeld

the next step of the partnership will be presented during milan design week 2013, in which lagerfeld will create the scenography 
that will animate cassina's historical showroom in via durini. the presentation will combine photographs and furniture, 
in what will be his original vision of the brand.
