product details

This design dates back to 1959. And today, after half a century, the meticulous reissue by Cassina for the Cassina I Maestri collection, still conveys all of its distinct modernity. Franco Albini, an architect since 1929, forged an alliance with Cassina in the 1940s. In 1952, together with Franca Helg, his regular partner from that year on, he designed the Tre Pezzi armchair, an ultra-modern reinterpretation of the classic bergère. The deep set, the back support ring that traces a perfect semi-circle and the half moon headrest, all have their own clean and distinct sharp geometric shape. Large, padded and embracing, they combine simplicity of form with a feeling of absolute comfort The tubular metal of the armrests borrows the detail of the Milanese underground handrails, another design by the same Master.

Designer

Franco Albini

Como/Milano, 1905/1977 He was a major figure in the Rationalist Movement, excelling in architectural, furniture, industrial and museum design. After receiving a degree in architecture from the Politecnico di Milano in 1929, he worked with the Ponti and Lancia design studios. His work for the magazine Casabella also played a key part in his development, marking his conversion to the Rationalist Movement and his becoming its spokesman on the Italian cultural scene. When he set up his own practice in Milan in 1931, he took on the challenge of workers’ housing and continued in this vein after the war, thanks to the opportunities offered by the reconstruction projects he worked on with Franca Helg from 1952.
