The air gives it shape and fills it, in return the leather gives it the image and protects it. They become two disparate elements, opposed, but working in symbiosis. Characteristic of the material that covers us all living beings, and that at the same time has served as a protector and container in all human cultures. In this case, the leather protects something as ethereal and delicate as the air.
Designer & Collection
In 2005, he started the restoration of a 19th century tannery, where he moved his studio and which in turn became an exhibition and promotion space for Igualada’s old industrial district.
Since 2009, he has been promoting REC.0, an innovative project to give visibility to architectural heritage through the temporary installation of “pop up” shops in abandoned tanneries.
As a result of this project, he started to contact and make friends with the tanners in the area, get to know their work and the possibilities of the material. He begins to explore and experiment with leather. Finally in 2015 he starts the TORU project. A mixture of ideas and sensations turned into objects.
