Leonardo Dainelli was born in 1971 in Pisa, Italy. In 1991 he studies to graduate in industrial design at Cappiello’s Academy of Florence.
In South America Leonardo met Marzia, the beginning of a personal and professional union.
She is an architect and he is a designer. Together they founded a studio active in various fields of design, Studio Reverso.
Established in 2007 the studio is located in a rustic house built in 1600, in the heart of Tuscany, that has been restored with a modern twist. This location is well suited for their project methodology: to translate the past in the grace of forms, in the simplicity of sign, in the sincerity of project. Even from the first projects one can recognize these distinctive characteristics of their creativity.
A route marked by the expression of innovative ideas, has allowed the architects and designers to obtain collaborations as art directors and planners with leading furniture companies.
Their strength resides in following the whole project: from the initial idea to the model developed with craftsmen, from the production to the communication of the product. Thanks to a wide range of skills, their office is active in various areas of design including product, interior, exhibition and graphic.
