Franco Albini

LUISA – 1939/1955

Small armchair with steel bearing structure, back and seat and expanded polyurethane stuffing. Walnut-tree canaletto, natural ash or ash dyed black. Fabric or leather covering.
Franco Albini worked fifteen years to the final version of this chair that accomplishedly expresses one of the strongholds of his poetic: the thickening of the single wooden elements in the junction points.
This new language in 1955 earned the “Compasso d’oro” award.

Made by Cassina since 2008
