Rare first production of the model 2050 chandelier designed by Franco Albini and Franca Helg and manufactured by Arteluce in Italy, 1963. Very nice pendant lamp with a neutral brown coloured plexiglass shade and a frosted rounded glass diffuser shade on the inside. The plexiglass shade had a really nice inner texture of horizontal lining especially when lit. This gives the lamp its elegance. On top of the shade sits a chrome plate where the chrome stem and cable is attached to. The stem has two open circles that go through the rings on both sides. The ceiling fixture is also made of chrome. The lamp has the original sticker on the inside of the shade. Also is the lamp in very good original condition.


Franco Albini, an influential Italian architect known for his work in Rationalism, collaborated with Franca Helg on various projects. Together, they designed everything from big projects like Milan Metro line 1 stations, where they worked with graphic designer Bob Noorda, to smaller-scale urban developments, buildings, and museums across Italy. In the world of design, Albini and Helg are renowned for creating timeless furniture and accessories. Their designs were innovative, both in their approach and their choice of materials, making them significant contributors to the evolution of design culture in the early 20th century, recognized internationally for their impact.
