Dear Bartok design,

In the chaos of shifting, I forgot to update and say that we have received the bathtub and the children are enjoying it extremely well. Especially my littlest who squeals in joy every time we tell her she can go in the bath.

Regards,
S. from Singapore (more…)

Duckboards Master BR 1“Hi!
The duckboards arrived and are gorgeous!   Plus, they smell delicious!   See some iPad pics below.  
We wondered what the little black pads are for.  Also, the 4 extra pieces of wood?
Thanks again!”

tub stained and cleaned up!

Here below is the mail correspondence with a client who purchased a tub in 2014.
He kindly agreed to have it published here as it may be of help to other fellow ofuro owners.

Dear Iacopo,
I hope this note finds you and your family very well.
I look forward to a time of leisure where I can see you again.
In the meantime, due to my laziness at not wiping the tub down and its position next to the shower, it has taken on the less than ideal character shown in these photos.
Is there anything I can do to restore the surface at this point?
Thanks kindest X.

Dear Iacopo

Of course you can use the picture, I have added a few others. It’s difficult to take pictures because of the confined space. But one can see the puristic, minimalistic design which pervades the whole house. You will also recognize the details, like the pebbles of the river Rhine outside which mirror the pebbles of the floor of the bath (and entrance) only with a smooth surface; or the windows without windowsills, so that the window reveals become the frame for the picture landscape.

The smell of the Hinoki bath is still overwhelming! If not in use I cover it with a light plastic foil and put a small bucket with some water inside to keep the smell. And when I lift it off it, I am at once somewhere else with my thoughts. It’s just great, the best decision ever. Even my visitors notice the smell as soon as entering the house.

Beside lots of bamboo, 3 japanese cherry trees I planted a Ginkgo. The leaves are down by now but some are captured in the Sumi-e I have attached

I wish you all the best for all your extensive and prudent efforts, especially in rescuing most valuable buildings. I have enormous respect for your engagements.

Hi Iacopo,
Bathtub cleared customs and quarantine last Thursday and we have been loving the bath ever since. It’s gorgeous 🙂
We just love it and the whole family uses it including my very tall partner !!
It’s beautifully made and makes our bathroom look fantastic.
Thankyou for your hardwork and craftsmanship it will be appreciated by our family for a VERY long time.
Of course you can publish my email in your testimonial corner 🙂

Customer`s comment:
Hi Yoshiaki-San,

I hope you are well. My house is now finished and the Japanese bath looks beautiful. Below is a link to the house. Please pass onto Torrini-San and let him know if he is in Australia he is welcome to stay at my house and experience the tranquility.

Iacopo`s answer:
Dear R:
The photo of the japanese tub is superb!
Did you use a professional photographer?
Also, do you think I can post it in the “testimonials” section of our homepage?

It would be great if I can post the link to the accomodation page: I am sure that ofuro lovers in Australia would have a great excuse to stay at your place.

Of course I appreciate your kind invitation.
I have never been to Australia yet, though it has been on the very top on my list of countries I would like to visit since my childhood!

Congratulations for your beautiful house and let`s keep in touch!

Best regards,

iacopo torrini
