new new breed


two friends one dream


It all started when...

In 1990, Leonardo Paradiso was breaking in his new hire, a nineteen year old college student and construction worker.  At the same time, Leonardo’s son left a promising job with a successful Chicago architectural firm to join the family business.  That day John Lindsay and Alessandro Paradiso became fast friends and even quicker co-workers.  For the next twenty years they maintained a loose mentorship.  Alex offered John an on the run education in design and architecture, while John shared his woodworking facilities, having left the Paradiso employ to make it as a professional woodworker and cabinetmaker. There, Alex continued his grandfather’s tradition of Italian furniture making, while John experimented in wood tectonics. Finally in 2010 they joined forces to become co-designers of a new breed of furniture.
