Expertly combining 100% recycled and recyclable Green Cast plastic with opal glass, the Model 2050 Pendant Light showcases the innovative spirit and forward-thinking modernity of visionary Italian lighting designers Albini and Helg. Astep has chosen to replace the methacrylate used on the original design with an eco-friendly alternative that retains all the same properties, imbuing it with a sense of timeless elegance that characterised the 1960s design.
As a leading figure of Rationalism, Franco Albini’s mark on the world of industrial design is undisputed. Working in collaboration with his trusted partner Franca Helg, the pair collaborated on projects both large and small, from the arrangement of stations on one of Milan’s Metro lines to the revitalisation of buildings across Italy.
Abini and Helg created a huge range of iconic furnishings and accessories over their respective careers, demonstrating unbounded innovation in both their approach and choice of materials. As cornerstones of 20th century design, their impact on the world of interior and industrial design is unmatched.
