AGATA, 1965

All the typical qualities of Albini and Helg’s experimentation with form are recognisable in this small object proportioned to the scale of a hand: making the material lighter; the search for fluid lines; slender geometric shapes; a certain propensity for tapered forms; exactitude; and subtle elegance that is modern and classic at the same time.
