Yoshimi Kono was born and raised in Japan. His grandfather ran a construction company and his father worked for the Ministry of Construction in Japan. Constant exposures and visits to the construction sites and his grandfather’s factory, naturally influenced him to be an architect in the early stages of his life. He studied architecture in Tokyo and worked for an interior design firm before moving to New York and in 2000 he founded Kono Designs. Kono has won several awards. H338 has been a favourite of many of our clients over the years, the unique form and ergonic grip it creates for the hand never fails to impress.
