TU BI was founded in 2021 by Brindisi-born artist Ivan Tafuro. The project draws inspiration from urban style, recreating sleek shapes through handmade glazed earthenware pieces. The name is a take on the pronunciation of the infinitive “to be” - symbolic of the Self as the highest form of artistic expression - and a play on the Italian word “tubi” - meaning tube-like or cylindrical.
TU BI took part in the "Matter to Dream" exhibition during Milan Design Week 2021 and in the "1000 Vases" exhibition
at Superstudio Più, as well as in the "Surfing the surfaces" exhibition during last Milan Design Week 2022
