Tōfus is an Architecture and Design studio based in Naples, Italy.
Tōfus consists of Alberto Grasso e Augusto De Cesare, both architects, grown up and trained and continuously influenced by this city.
Tōfus means tuff. It’s a Latin word that derives from ancient Greek. The Greek themselves, used to call this rock also póros, because of its own lightness and porosity.
Tōfus has the porosity of the tuff itself, as it absorbs and assimilates external incitements, experiences and knowledge. It aspires to the contemporary and looks at Europe and the rest of the World with hunger, interest and curiosity. Yet, it cannot ignore the smells, the colors, the light of the Mediterranean.
Tōfus, just like the typical neapolitan yellow tuff, combines architecture and territorial identity in a single term.

Tōfus è uno studio di architettura e design con base a Napoli.
Tōfus sono Alberto Grasso e Augusto De Cesare, architetti cresciuti, formati e continuamente influenzati da questa città.
Tōfus significa tufo. E’ latino e viene dal greco. Proprio loro, i Greci, questa pietra la chiamavano anche póros, per la sua caratteristica leggerezza e porosità.
Tōfus ha la porosità del tufo e per questo assorbe e si nutre di stimoli, di esperienze e di conoscenza. Ambisce al contemporaneo e guarda al resto d’Europa e del Mondo con fame, interesse e curiosità. Eppure non può prescindere dagli odori, dai colori, dalla luce del Mediterraneo.
Tōfus, proprio come il tufo giallo napoletano, si prefigge di coniugare in unico termine architettura e appartenenza al territorio.
