Franco Albini & Franca Helg

Franco Albini, a distin­guished Italian archi­tect and a key propo­nent of Ratio­nal­ism, stands as one of the defin­i­tive pioneers of indus­trial design. His collab­o­ra­tive endeav­ors with Franca Helg have yielded diverse projects, from large-scale inter­ven­tions like the layout of Milan Metro line 1 station along­side graphic designer Bob Noorda to urban plan­ning, archi­tec­tural creations, and museum designs across Italy.

In design, Albini and Helg have etched their names into the annals of time with time­less furnish­ings and acces­sories. Their inno­v­a­tive design approach and discern­ing choice of mate­ri­als have left an indeli­ble mark on the land­scape of design culture, repre­sent­ing an inter­na­tion­ally recog­nized corner­stone of design inno­va­tion in the early 20th century. Albini’s legacy extends beyond archi­tec­ture, solid­i­fy­ing his status as a lumi­nary in industrial design.
