Visit to Atelier Natsuko Toyofuku, Milano

In the Porta Garibaldi area, known for modern architecture and fashion, there are many typical Milanese buildings of the 19~20th century. Within the quiet courtyard of one such building on Corso Como 9 is the atelier of jewellery designer and artist, Natsuko Toyofuku.

Her works are displayed elegantly in the atelier & shop space, that is graced with high-ceilings and a gentle light that filters in through the windows.

Natsuko Toyofuku’s jewelry and sculptures are an homage to the harmony of Japanese aesthetics and Italian freedom of expression. The combination of bronze, with the strong colours of enamel and delicate colours of semi-precious stones, reflect the warmth of natural materials.

Her jewelry pieces that are displayed within the space which is much like an art gallery, seem to be sculptures on a small-scale…..
