For nearly sixteen years, Leo Capote has been searching for alternative uses for objects that are made for other purposes. Industrialized objects perform specifi c functions and are designed based on ergonomic principles — they adhere to technological and formal requirements, and are made of various materials, different fi nishes, and produced by a variety of manufacturing processes. These objects become raw material for him.
They lose their original function and are transformed to serve another system and perform different functions. This is his way of thinking about objects. A former employee of the Campana brothers, Leo today stands as one of the most promising designers in his country.
