Joined 9 years ago from japan




Hallo, My name is Iacopo Torrini: I am an italian architect living in Japan since 1998. I have a great passion for traditional japanese architecture and I worked for 3 years for a well known architectural office involved in restoration of heritage buildings in the Kansai area. I tried to get involved as much as possible in site management and I got the opportunity to learn directly from skilled craftsmen: carpenters, furniture makers, plasterers, thatched roof builders and so on. Needless to say this experience changed my life: be surrounded by natural materials is such a beautiful experience that I wanted to transmit it to my fellow foreigners who have the taste to appreciate it. As many acquaintances asked me about natural japanese products, I begun exporting hinoki tubs from year 2002.
