Franco Albini, born in 1905 in Italy, was a Neo-Rationalist Architect, Designer, and University Instructor of Design throughout his life.

Franco Albini is known well for designing the La Rinascente, a department store in Rome, in 1960.

In 1928 Albini designed the now-iconic “Albini Desk”, combining steel, glass and wood with a striking minimalistic balance.

Albini obtained three Compasso d’Oro awards, the most prestigious Italian design prize.
