Franco Albini

(Robbiate, 1905 – Milano, 1977)

“It is more from our works than through ourselves that we spread ideas.”

Franco Albini's work recounts a new concept of modernity, an “artistic rationalism” to be found in his search for harmony, in the classicism of proportions and in the constant balance between rigor and poetic fantasy. Starting from the 40s, he made several prototypes and unique pieces for a number of private homes, the success of which will be confirmed by their subsequent production by important Italian companies, including Poggi and Cassina.
