Takafumi Mochizuki

ZouganistaWood marquetry maker

Renaissance Florentine tradition meets Oriental art to create a unique and timeless style. Takafumi Mochizuki is the master of this fusion, that is the soul of his craft. Born in Tokyo in 1979, he moved to Florence in 2007 to refine the techniques of wood restoration and inlay. Trained in the workshop of the master craftsman Renato Olivastri, Takafumi launched his Zouganista brand in 2014, choosing the Oltrarno as his base. Over the years, he has worked for commercial brands, designers and private clients, as well as collaborating with other international artists and artisans. His works range from interior design pieces to the production of fashion accessories that he transforms into wearable masterpieces.
