Only a chair with strong charisma has the capacity to develop into a complete family
With more than 500,000 pieces sold to date, the Cab chair designed by Mario Bellini for Cassina in
1977 is one of his most recognisable, and copied, designs. This year the architect, just turned 80, has
further strengthened his 50 year collaboration with Cassina in a sign of continuity. Just like the Cab
family. Matured like a true icon, this range now extends to all areas of the home with the introduction of
the Cab Lounge armchair and the Cab Night bed.

Cab Night, an evolution to enrich the night-time area
The Cab Night brings the richness of materials and attention to detail to the bedroom. The structure and
the legs of the bed are upholstered in saddle leather, just like the other members of the family, and
particular saddlery craftsmanship details are visible in the joints between the various parts of the bed.
The bed’s headboard, slightly tapered and padded, is characterised by a stitching feature which divides
the left side from the right. The headboard is upholstered in a precious leather produced with a specific
tanning process which makes it even softer, so that when one rests against it strong sensations of well-
being are felt. The frame is upholstered in soft leather with a particularly complex workmanship due to
the thickness of the leather that is used.
Two versions of the Cab Night are available: with a traditional headboard or with the headboard fixed to
the wall, an ideal solution also for the contract sector. Both are available in the standard measurements
of the Cassina catalogue.
