Founder & CTO
My passion is the Industrial Design, I deal with innovation projects related to product, interior and design strategy. My goal is to find new ways of using materials, concepts and products giving a “twist” to their normal uses, finding solutions in line with the current industrial background. In my projects there is always an emotional component linked mainly to the territory and its people.
FOUNDER & Ceo
I love innovation and sustainability, within 20 years of experience as CEO of various companies and after selling the shares of my previous start-up, I decided to undertake a new challenge at the helm of Lebiu to offer the market a series of textile products with excellent physical characteristics and with a high content of bio-based ingredients, designed to respect the environment and reduce harmful emissions deriving from textile production and leather tanning.
Fabio Molinas occasionally helps in his grandfather's small cork factory and begins to use cork powder to shape small artistic objects.
During the Product Innovation master, Fabio Molinas is experimenting with new materials using cork powder and natural resins, "Leather for Vegetarians" is born, the first prototype made with a domestic oven and food glues.
After years of research and development Leather for vegetarians becomes Corskin, the product under the LEBIU brand, an innovative startup that deals with conceiving new bio-based and recycled materials. Alessandro Sestini joins the team as CEO.
Lebiu company launches Corskin and Nanocork on the market using bio-based raw materials and 100% Sardinian cork residue.
