Description

The theme of the curved tube, which in this case becomes an "infinite" handrail, introduces us to what probably represented one of the most interesting projects on the "design" and "interior" relationship created by Albini, or the "furniture" system for the stations of line 1 of the Milanese underground (1962-1964), designed with Franca Helg, Antonio Piva and with the graphics of Bob Noorda. On this project for an architectural interior on an urban scale, the problem was to involve masses of users in various directions and with the minimum of friction and dispersion. Handrails and functional equipment are suspended from their anonymity, transformed into signals and detached with extreme sharpness and elegance from the wall, acting as the bearing lines of a very clear design, which marks a precise spatial formation and modulation, like a trace that defines and multiplies the spaces.
