Leonardo Rossano

An architect and designer, he graduated in ‘91 in Florence, where he resides. In the 90’s he collaborated with architect Claudio Nardi’s studio designing for private residence, public spaces and boutiques including leading Italian designers like Dolce & Gabbana, G. Ferrè and Valentino. Since ’98 he is a freelance designer of furniture, furnishing complements, exhibition space and company image communication.

He was teaching assistant to Prof. Robert Segoni in the course of “Industrial Design” before becoming a teacher himself lecturing for the Bachelor of Fashion Design in Florence until ‘09.

He currently teaches History of design at IED and Design at the Florence University of Art, for the international masters at Florence Institute of Design International and Polimoda.

He’s an ADI member and won the “Good Design Award” of Chicago Athenaeum for the furniture sector 2013.

Influenced by technologies and nature as an unfailing source of inspiration, I always look for formal, simple and essential solutions. In my opinion a balance between aesthetics and functionality is always topical especially when it arises from the confrontation between evolving behaviours and new trends.
