Back in early 2020, Luigi Brenna and Lorenzo Galvani, brought together by their involvement with Archinapsi, decided to pool their talents for collaborative projects, realizing they complemented each other well in terms of skills and artistic vision. By 2022, they made the joint decision to officially unite as L2 Architecture & Design, while still embracing their individual identities.
Influenced by the captivating history and natural allure of Montefeltro, Lorenzo Galvani embarked on his academic journey in 2000, enrolling in the Industrial Design Course at La Sapienza University of Rome’s School of Architecture. Specializing in furniture and interior design, he honed his craft at Cà Belli luce s.a.s., mastering techniques in stonework and lighting. This laid the foundation for his foray into interior design, where he left his mark on public spaces like offices, shops, and private dwellings. In 2010, alongside his architect brother, he co-founded Quadrastudio, whose goal is to put a "sartorial" design at the work’s center, where detail and research have made it possible to obtain recognition and appreciation among customers and others.
Luigi Brenna’s journey began with a degree in architecture from Milan Polytechnic, followed by a doctoral pursuit in Industrial Design at the same institution. Since 2005, he’s been sharing his expertise as a lecturer, guiding students through courses like Metaproject and Visual Elements. Brenna’s professional path was paved with internships at esteemed Milanese firms, where he gained invaluable experience in interior renovations, custom furniture design, and the restoration of condominium facades. As a co-founder of Archinapsi and the Urbanizer cultural association, he actively champions service design initiatives aimed at enriching urban life, constantly seeking fresh inspiration to innovate across various design disciplines. Brenna's passion for drawing and painting finds expression in his celebrated "Urban Portraits. Milano" series, which has captivated audiences at numerous exhibitions.
