The modern classic Cassina ‘Wink” chaise-longue – the perfectly flexible option for smaller spaces – has been relaunched in a number of new colour combinations
The Wink, designed by Toshiyuki Kita, was a style ico of the 1980s and was not only innovative in its style and technology, but signalled a less formal approach to furniture design that was futuristic while, at the same time, both playful and practical.
The Wink chaise-longue has been updated with a wide range of contemporary fabrics and colour combinations for its separate elements, including its trademark Mickey Mouse ears.
With floor supports in black plastic, side knobs adjust the back and the headrest is divided in two parts, each with an independent reclining position. By tilting the base forward the armchair becomes a chaise longue.
In Australia, the Wink can be ordered through Cult Designs, for upwards of $7100, with a 14 week waiting period.
