Half Sumo Collective (1/2 SUMO) is a brand identity house born in BK in 2015, founded by 3 guys who grew up reading probably too many mangas, they are growing fast, operating at the intersection of art and commerce, with the full force of a sumo..... at half of the size... the 1/2 SUMO is like a mythological creature, he is the fat hero, loud, touchy, abusive, sweaty and definitely ugly but he is black belts in creative thinking ... and smart design.

Purchasing limited edition items are final sales. These items are made by order.
Nanogram is a small collective of artisans driven by the pursuit of mastery. Architects by day, and makers by night, we obsess over craft in our discipline of wood manipulation. We follow five core tenets: Majime- seriousness about one’s art; Kojoshin- aspiring to improve oneself and one’s work; Seiketsukan- cleanliness and freshness of workspace; Ganko- stubbornness, obstinacy in the quest for excellence; and Jyonetsu- passion, enthusiasm for one’s profession. No matter how good you are today, you can get better. This is the essence of shokunin kishitsu, the “craftman spirit.” Our goal is simple: make high design accessible to all. Follow us on our unending journey of improvement.
