“Design for me means creating products that over the years will acquire classic status, becoming part of our surroundings,” said Joan Casas i Ortinez, the Spanish designer of the Lucca Collection (2003). Casas i Ortinez spent 49 years designing at Indecasa, an outdoor furniture company in Barcelona, eventually leading the creative team. Lucca pieces, designed with luxury hotels and cruise ships in mind, have frames constructed of corrosion-resistant aluminum. The dining table can be used with an umbrella; the leg configuration will accommodate umbrella stands up to 24 inches in diameter. Suitable for residential and commercial use. Each piece ships flat to save on packing materials; simple assembly required. Made in Spain.
"Design for me means creating products for industry, for sale, that are functional and please thousands of people and that over the years will acquire classic status, becoming part of our surroundings," said Joan Casas i Ortinez. One of Spain's most prolific furniture designers, he built an extensive assortment of classic and contemporary European café seating - DWR followers will recognize his work in the Lucca Collection, the Indecasa TB Barstool, the Elena Collection and others.
