Franco Albini

Born in Como in 1905, Franco Albini had perfected his designs in terms of architecture, furniture, industry and museums, and was also an important figure for the architectural Rationalist Movement.
Having received his diploma in architecture from Politecnico di Milano in 1929, Albini then worked with Ponti and Lancia design studios.
His works for the magazine Casabella played an important role in his development as a designer. This period became influential in his leniency towards the Rationalist Movement and the fact that he then became the movement’s spokesperson in Italy.
Opening his own studio in 1931, Albini worked on reconstruction projects with Franca Helg after 1952. In the 1940s, the designer expanded his collaboration with Cassina. The chairs he designed for the brand becae his signature works in the following years. Albini also designed furniture for other brands like Poggi.
