Born in Italy, Giorgio Caporaso graduated in Architecture in 1996 specialising in Industrial Design and Furnishing at Milan Polytechnic.

From the beginning he dealt with interior design, residential design and industrial design and visual communication, assisting with educational programs at several university courses at the Polytechnic.
In 1997 he opened his own studio devoted to architecture and design, architectural design, products, furniture and interior design for businesses and individuals. In the meantime he cooperated with other studies in the field of exhibitions, corporate identity and product design.
In 1999 he founded his design company and started dealing with the themes of sustainable architecture, renewable energy and energy-saving technologies. Thus began the study of a range of products and furnishings designed according to the criteria of sustainable design.
His personal aesthetic direction is oriented toward the testing of innovative combinations of materials and the research for simple and interchangeable solutions. This patient and courageous processing work continued until 2007, when the first products of its Ecodesign Collection were created, suitable for all areas of contemporary life and designed to optimize their use and their duration. His projects have been published in International architecture and design books and journals. His works have been exhibited in major trade fairs, exhibitions, specialised fairs, as well as used for ‘eco-friendly environments’ and television sets.

Prestigious awards in the course of its business: among them Honours List at the XVIII Compasso d’Oro and Honorable Mention at the XVI Biennial BIO16 of Ljubljana. In 2008 the MORE project won the competition “Tomorrow Design Philosophy: Match-Making Matching tradition with change, cultural heritage with global interface” organized by the BEDG British European Design Group at the “100% Design Futures 2008” in London.

Its products have been exhibited in the 'paper recycling' section, in the exhibition "Experience Italy 150°. Future Station. The remaking of Italy" held in Turin in 2011 and in the exhibition "Live and Think through Paper and Cardboard, Between Art and Design" by Paolo Biscottini held at the Diocesan Museum of Milan in 2011.

In 2012 he was invited to exhibit at the XIII Biennale di Architettura in Venice, in the “Domotic Sensory Home”, a project of the Italian Pavilion.
Between 2012 and 2013, the furnishings of the Ecodesign Collection by Giorgio Caporaso Lessmore were part of the traveling exhibition "Ri come ...", born in the Piano Integrato Transfrontaliero (PIT) Modusriciclandi.
In 2013, the entire Ecodesign Collection by Lessmore was exhibited in the exhibition dedicated to Giorgio Caporaso entitled "Cardboard Dreams – The sustainable levity of design" April 10 to 25 in Varese (Villa Recalcati).

Some items of the Ecodesign Collection were displayed at the exhibition "Ecology, environment, intelligence: creativity in respect of Creation" promoted by the Ministry for the Environment, Land and Sea in collaboration with the John Paul II Foundation for Youth of the Pontifical Council for the Laity and the Vatican Museums, which will be held from July 9 to October 13, 2013 at the Museum of Fine Arts in Rio de Janeiro.
