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 all things ANO. Very much a Japan lover, she loves to cook (Japanese off course!) and drink good coffee. When she isn't thinking about Japan she can be found in museums, nature or eating sweet 'n spicy pickles.
JAPAN & GEOMETRY
ANO Studio makes art prints, lasercut jewellery, paper goods and small accessories. A Japanese aesthetic runs throughout the brand. Stemming from a long fascination with this intoxicating country, it's a boundless source of inspiration. Combine this with Hannah's love for geometry and you get what ANO Studio is all about.
I strive to keep as much of a sustainable practice as possible. For instance using soy inks where possible and 100% recycled acrylics as much as I can. Almost everything I make is produced and printed in The Netherlands.
So ANO, does it actually mean something?
Ano is a typical Japanese word meaning ‘that over there’, in this case the Studio! But ano あの can also be used as a space filler in conversations, like you’re saying "umm". It's a great way to fill up conversation when you are a bit shy or hesitant like I sometimes am!
