Begge only designed one furniture line: Casalino for Casala. ‘Not a single drawing I made’, he remembers. ‘I had this image of a wisp of fog, and elaborated on that. It brought so much joy, I was in a glow. The Casala factory had a siren, which sounded several times a day. When the siren went off at the end of the working day, I though it was time for a coffee break. I had forgotten everything around me.’
Despite the success and the pleasure of designing Casalino, Alexander Begge never designed any furniture again.
