Our history & Mission

Albedo proposal begins with a collection of very different furniture pieces, designed for home living spaces, where forms, functions and textural finishes interact well together and allow to furnish with an eclectic style of strong personality, a never evanescent or fashionable furniture, but deliberately imbued with executive preciosity inspired by traditional craftsmanship, long lasting and simultaneously nomad; objects that remain and coexist with places, cultures and always evolving lifestyles.
Every home is an expression of its inhabitants personality, expresses its history, memories, passions, culture; Albedo enters in this world quietly, humbly, respectfully, but with the strength of a determined and not contaminated design, just not to override existing styles, but interacting with them and adding value in a set of intimate personality.
