Made in Italy




The small armchair, dubbed Luisa, is the fruit of a fifteen-year process of exploration, focused on creating an archetype of the basic elements of a chair, and its potential uses within the home.

A idea-based design, where Franco Albini expressed the concept of “substance in the form”, increasing the volume of the wooden parts where they join with others. Following various enhancements, the definitive version of the chair was awarded the prestigious Compasso D’Oro prize by the Italian Industrial Design Association (Associazione per il Disegno Industriale/ADI).

The frame represents a synthesis where the seat and the back are two geometric planes suspended on an understated wood structure, the sides reminiscent of trestles. Luisa is a timeless piece, the outcome of skill in terms of technique and materials. This world-exclusive Cassina re-issue has been made possible thanks to the company’s extraordinary woodworking capabilities.

He went on to found his own design studio in 1931, where he designed a wide range of products, from furniture and lighting to buildings and exhibitions.

Albini's iconic works include the Albini Desk, Margherita Chair, Veliero Bookcase and Radiofonografo designed in collaboration with Franca Helg. His contributions to modern Italian design earned him numerous accolades, including the prestigious Compasso d'Oro in 1955 and 1979.
