About Franco Albini
Franco Albini graduated in Architecture at Milan Politecnico. During his career he expanded his field of action to furniture, product design, architecture, urban planning and interior design.
His feelings as a rationalist artist were converted into furniture designs with the particularity of being transparent, presenting their internal structure and processes of production.

They have worked with and helped propel the careers of designers such as Hannes Wettstein, Philippe Starck and Piero Lissoni and are known worldwide for their passionate carpentry. Chaplins prides itself on its vast collection of timeless furniture classics and current must-haves from Cassina.
