about PIANO PIANO
Welcome to PIANO PIANO, I am Noriko Yamasaki and the founder of PIANO PIANO. I was born and raised in southern Japan and now run PIANO PIANO from the heart of London.
PIANO PIANO, in Italian, means “slowly slowly”and holds the essense of this project in those repeated words. In an old Italian proverb it says "CHI VA PIANO, VA SANO E VA LONTANO" to which the English traslation returns "The one who slows down arrives safe and sound."
This project aims to bridge East to West, South to North and Past to Present with fair sprit, joy and adventure.
PIANO PIANO works to support ethical projects through collaboration on designs and providing the introduction to the concious consumer.
