  • Description
    Franco Albini (1905-1977) lived in Milan where he stuied Architecture at the Politecnico. He started his career at Gio Ponti's studio, with whom he collaborated before getting in touch with some more international realities. But it's when he met Edoardo Persico, that his work became more rationalist. The new phase that that meeting provoked began with the opening of the first professional studio on Panizza Street with Renato Camus and Giancarlo Palanti.
    But it is above all in the context of exhibitions that the Milanese master experiments with his compromise between that "rigor and poetic imagination" of which Pagano spoke, coining the elements that will be a recurring theme in all declinations of his work - architectures, interiors, design pieces.
    Here we have a wooden cabinet mod. MB15 designed in 1957 for Poggi. It summarizes big part of the Albini's research: the theme of the lightness, research of the materials and obsession with balance. It is entirely in wood.
