Leonardo da Vinci (1452 -1519) was the inspiration for our company’s name. Leonardo was born in the Italian village of Vinci (daVinci meaning from Vinci), and was a renowned polymath of the Renaissance. Leonardo was a brilliant artist, inventor, architect, and engineer, just to name a few of the things he excelled at. Through his ability to blend artistic vision with the scientific knowledge of the time, Leonardo was the brains behind some of the most cutting edge and revolutionary designs in history. We like to think of him as “The Old Man”, a source of inspiration; a figure whose mental prowess and unrelenting curiosity we try to emulate everyday, and in all of our projects.
