Converso presents a solo show of Albert Frey furniture

Swiss architect Albert Frey began his career in Le Corbusier’s office before moving to America. The never-before-seen furniture on show, presented at Converso’s inaugural exhibition at Design Miami, was designed in 1949 for his own home in Palm Springs. Using the California desert as his muse, Frey designed a number of minimalist homes that stood unobtrusively in the surrounding area.
