From the idea of developing a modular system that allows for multiple possibilities of lamp combinations from the same collection, Franco Albini and Franca Helg, in collaboration with Antonio Piva, devised a mechanism that combined the same metallic support in various versions.
The AS43C was the result, a three-arm chandelier in chromed metal with an opal glass diffuser.

Franco Albini was a major figure in the Rationalist Movement, excelling in architectural, furniture, industrial and museum design. After receiving a degree in architecture from the Politecnico di Milano in 1929, he worked with the Ponti and Lancia design studios. His work for the magazine Casabella also played a key part in his development, marking his conversion to the Rationalist Movement and his becoming its spokesman on the Italian cultural scene. When he set up his own practice in Milan in 1931, he took on the challenge of workers’ housing and continued in this vein after the war, thanks to the opportunities offered by the reconstruction projects he worked on with Franca Helg from 1952. During the 1940’s, Albini expanded his collaboration with Cassina, which started with chair designs that paved the way for his signature style.
