or Call to Order

Canapo chaise lounge by Franco Albini boasts an expres­sive energy. The previ­ously unre­al­ized design was released by Cassina in 2008. It is a faith­ful reading of both the designer’s intent and his vision of the equi­lib­rium created through move­ment. The sepa­ra­tion of parts affected by the designer makes it perfect for indus­trial manu­fac­tur­ing, the perfect marriage between the artisan and the tech­no­log­i­cal, as testi­fied by the elegant curve and the distinc­tive touch conferred by the joints. The slim wooden rockers under­score the crafts skills inher­ent in Cassina’s crafts­man­ship and become a veri­ta­ble invi­ta­tion to sit back, get comfort­able and relax.

Franco Albini

Italy (1905–1977)

Born in Milan in 1905, Franco Albini's work spans across furniture design, product design, architecture, urban planning and interior design. His work was an integration of modern design and Italian craftsmanship. Through his product and furniture design, Albini celebrated the raw form of materials and transparent construction. Albini would forgo ornament and encasement of furniture, to allow the structure to be revealed. In 1939, he debuted a radio fully encased in glass to expose the inner workings. His most well-known work is the Albini Desk in 1949 for Knoll, which is still in production today. As a designer, he has collaborated with Gio Ponti, Franca Helg, as well as Helg and Bob Noorda.
