Don Albinson was an American Furniture Designer. He studied in Sweden, Cranbrook Academy of Art, Bloomfield Hills, Michigan, and Yale University.

The 1965 stacking Albinson chair produced by Knoll was similar to British Designer’s Robin Day trendy chair for Hille, although Albinson’s was more sophisticated. They stack, hook together side by side and comfortable to sit in. After Knoll he became a consultant designer to Westinghouse on office seating and furniture systems.

Albinson said that the most important consideration in the design of his chair was to go farther than previous designers did in fitting chairs to persons of different dimensions.
