Design­ers: Franco Albini and Franca Helg
Franco Albini (1905–1977) and Franca Helg (1929–1989) began to work together in 1952. This prac­tice, later on was joined by the archi­tects Anto­nio Piva and Marco Albini, is con­cerned about archi­tec­ture, town­plan­ning and design. In 1952 they were respon­si­ble for the restora­tion of the S. Lorenzo, Palazzo Bianco and Rosso Muse­ums, the city coun­cil offices and the res­i­den­tial and office com­plex of Pic­capi­etra in Genoa. From 1957 they designed La Rinascente store in Rome, five res­i­den­tial blocks in Milan and the ther­mal baths at Sal­so­mag­giore. In 1962 they designed the fit­tings for the first line (and later for the sec­ond one) of the Milan metro sys­tem. In 1973, with other office’s mem­bers, they designed the third build­ing for the Snam offices at San Donato Milanese. They col­lab­o­rated with San Lorenzo since 1970.

San Lorenzo
Since 1970 the his­tory of man­u­fac­tur­ing sil­ver objects has been renewed by San Lorenzo. The com­pany inte­grates the tra­di­tional skills of the sil­ver­smith with tech­nol­ogy bor­rowed from appli­ca­tions out­side its world and intro­duces an unusual way of look­ing at sil­ver: that of the architects-designers who are asked to cre­ate sil­ver objects, giv­ing pref­er­ence to the nature of the mate­r­ial but recall­ing for­mal conventions.
