The Franco Albini Story
Though all thoroughly modern, Franco Albini's designs still honor the traditionalist values of handcrafted personalization and historical accuracy. While many designers downplay the appearance of "lesser" fittings and columns, Albini’s lamps and pendants have a stalwart appearance, their "lesser" parts playing as important a role as the shades themselves. It's as if he's paying tribute to the lasting hefty columns that support ancient Roman buildings. By taking pieces from the past and updating them with modern technology, Albini's designs achieve timeless appeal, as seen in his 1969 collection.
