Design by Antoni Arola, 2003.
Made in Barcelona, Spain by Santa & Cole.
Born out of recycling and the unpredictable. Designer Antoni Arola had collected some tossed out sheets of veneer from the street and lived at least a year with the pieces in various corners of his studio. He resisted throwing them out, being attracted to the material. Finally, forced to clean up after experimenting unsuccessfully, Arola found them in bulges in his arms on his way to the trash bin and realized in that marvelous moment, out of chaos and fumbling, that the Leonardo was created.
The original design was in maple veneer, then had a successful run in white cardboard, and is now available in poplar veneer (White Wood Leonardo). Poplar is almost white and casts a pale yellow glow.

Santa & Cole
Since the late 1980's, Santa & Cole has lived for industrial design, an art consisting of focusing on everyday objects in order to seek a better use experience, thereby leading them to reflect upon material culture. Hence, Santa & Cole edit elements of domestic and urban furniture and lighting, plant elements (which are living matter) and books (which are likewise alive). A range that is only apparently disperse, converging upon a single concern: not to accumulate, but rather to select; not to enjoy quantity, but rather quality.
