Leonardo was created in 1969, just one prototype based on the design of the founders of Studio65 - Franco and Nanà Audrito for their home office in Turin. The project is a parody of the sectional sofas that were fashionable in the living rooms in the 1960s and now joins the Gufram catalogue with the same original finish in stars and stripes in a limited edition series of only 15 pieces.
In each of its configurations, Leonardo celebrates, deconstructs, and exalts the American flag and its positive values while denouncing the faults and the imperialistic bent of the United States during the years of the Vietnam War and the beginning of the Nixon presidency in 1969.
The Leonardo Sofa can be rearranged into joints and structural constraints. It is also an apparent reference to the Vitruvian Man by Leonardo da Vinci. Two concentric circles achieve their modularity within a square, marked by two perpendicular and two diagonal axes. More than a sofa, Leonardo is a content-rich domestic sculpture that retains the soft connotation and tactile aspect conditioned by its special, unique finish in Gufram's Guflac®.

Studio 65, populated by a substantial group of newly graduated architects - and frequented by students and artists - found the way of both of expressing their imaginations in a project, and of offering the client and the cultural world a touch of irony and a critical approach to design.
