Designed in Amsterdam, inspired by Japan
ANO Studio is a small design studio and online shop based in Amsterdam, The Netherlands.
A true one woman show run by Hannah Kay, the designer and maker behind ANO. Probably best described as a self-confessed Japan nerd, coffee lover and avid reader living in a constant Japan-induced state of wanderlust.
ANO Studio makes bold prints, lasercut abstract jewellery, paper goods and small accessories. ANO has a Japanese aesthetic running throughout the brand. Stemming from a long fascination with this wonderful country it's a boundless source of inspiration.
And truthfully who doesn't get excited by a steaming bowl of Ramen?
When designing we try to keep as much as a sustainable practice as possible. For instance using soy inks where possible and using 100% recycled acrylics as much as we can. There still is a long way to go but we try to incorporate this as much as we can.
So ANO, does it actually mean something?
Ano is a Japanese pronoun meaning ‘that over there’, in this case the Studio! On top of that, ano あの can also be used a space filler in conversations, like you’re saying "umm..." and it's a great way to fill up conversations when you are a bit shy and hesitant.
So when you want to get yourself heard, why not let ANO Studio do the talking for you!
