Gispen - Casala - Peter de Boer
Casala is known for contract furniture, furniture to be deployed where design is to prove its functional worth: in congress halls and churches, at offices, universities and government agencies, and in care centres. As you can see, Casala's contract furniture could be used for many different purposes.
