Franco Albini

Born in Milan in 1905, Franco Albini studied architecture at the Politecnico di Milano and began his career in the studio of one of the most famous architects and designers Gio Ponti. Like Ponti, Albini was a Neo-Rationalist designing furniture that was reductive and responded to the the new industrial material available at the time. During his career he collaborated with leading design manufacturers including Brionvega, Arflex Furniture and Arteluce, and was responsible for the design of interiors and buildings including many of Milan's subway stations. Albini was a writer and editor for Casabella magazine and received three Compasso d'Oro awards, one of Italy's most prestigious accolades.
