Albedo (from Latin albus, white) is the ratio of the light reflected by an object History or a surface to that received by it.
Albedo also refers to the dawn, the beginning of a new day, a new story, a new brand, born in 2016 from a project by two established managers in the furniture industry, passionate, visionary and courageous entrepreneurs who believe in the Italian ability to interpret the wide taste of an educated, sensitive and design-lover international audience.
This effect of light and shadows, black and white, surfaces carved in a play of light and dark inspired the designer Carlo Cumini to create a collection of furnishings characterized by a strong personality and unique, democratic, perceptible design, intentionally oriented to enhance the forms and the exclusively handcrafted production discending from a culture and a craftsmanship that historically belongs to the Made in Italy.
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.
Albedo quality is guaranteed by the exquisite craftsmanship of precious materials used; wood, metal, leather, fabric, glass, selected and shaped by Italian craftsmen with whom we work to ensure our customers the assurance of Italian quality and the flexibility to create custom finishes on customers and interior designers request.
Albedo headquarter and showroom are based in Northeast Italy, between Veneto and Friuli, the historic area of manufacturing in the furniture industry, 40 km far from Venice; from this wonderful city it draws inspiration for the taste for beautiful things and the culture of the architectural proportions.
