He exploited the very skilled Italian craftsmanship creating an elegant design based on a minimalist aesthetic.
Franco Albini, among other companies, worked for Brionvega, Cassina, Arflex, Arteluce and Poggi and obtained three Compasso d'Oro awards, the most prestigious Italian design prize.
The TL2 table is considered among one of his most famous and recognized designs.
