do you know… franco albini? … a protégé of gio ponti

As you may remember, the first Thursday of every month I’m over at MODENUS as a contributing editor.  Today I bring you the incomparable Franco Albini whose body of work has been largely overlooked due to the huge popularity of this, the Tre Pezzi Wool chair (above), which is currently being reissued in limited numbers by Cassina, the Italian, uber-luxury furniture studio.  Many original designs were never produced… until now.  Come on over to MODENUS to take a look.
