Alba Gallizia, architect and designer, works closely with many sophisticated Italian craftsmen. In 2015 she founded the brand Algares, which produces high-end Italian craft objects. Her creations combine architecture, design and craft, such as for example the objects of the Metropolis collection.
Metropolis is intended for the metropolitan travellers of today, so curious and refined. Its objects are not short-lived, they do not celebrate the obsolescence of the fashion-system. Its objects are made to last over time, and can virtually make up a “private collection”, the outcome of one’s personal and sophisticated taste.
Metropolis belongs to the cultural humus of Milan, a city where many worldwide skills and know-hows come together to invent a new stylistic synthesis. In Milan, history and traditions reveal themselves by way of proportions, material knowledge, warmth and reciprocity.
