Kokoro in Japanese means the heart. The heart is like the core of things.
KOKORO DESIGN STUDIO IS OFFICIALLY DEDICATED TO DISCOVERING THE TOUCH POINT OF THE MINIMAL AND INTIMATE IN LIFE, AND THEREFORE THE DESIGN OF EVERYDAY OBJECTS.
DESIGN INSPIRATION COMES FROM ASCETIC CULTURE OF MONTENEGRO AND JAPAN.
KOKORO EMERGED AS A THEME THAT SHOULD BE MY RELATIONSHIP TO LIFE, SOMEHOW I HAVE CONCLUDED THAT ALL THINGS NEED TO BE SIMPLIFIED, TO THE VERY HEART.
As I am more a visual person than narrative, I am interested in all the visible things. I believe that in all things there is some beauty. This discovery process is actually the most interesting to me. Detailing through simplification.
kokoro makes small collections with the accent of slow fashion so every piece is unique, timeless and handmade.
These photrographs were created at two interesting architectural sites. One series of photo shoots was made at the almost abandoned socio-modernist Hotel located in the lush greenery of Herceg novi - montenegro, along the coast. The second series of photographs was made at the National Library of France the first example of minimal modern architecture in Paris, design by architect Dominique Perrault.
