A B O U T
Mokkō is an Amsterdam based design studio for products and spaces, representing a modern simplicity inspired by Japanese aesthetics. Our design is characterized by a clean and modest appearance with a strong character and presence. Mokkō means woodworking in Japanese, which is a reference to its source of inspiration, or - more accurately - its source of fascination.
Our products are made of natural, sustainable materials and are hand finished by Amsterdam craftsmen. The field of spaces includes custom interior furnishing representing a modern interpretation of a serene Japanese style, striving to create pleasing and inspiring rather than impressing spaces.
We are passionate and dedicated creators who strive for perfection, dream big and are always open to discuss new projects and collaborations.

While traveling through Japan, founder Aad Bos got fascinated by the Japanese dedication to perfection and sense of aesthetics affecting every aspect of life in Japan. Not long thereafter Aad decided to leave the corporate business environment and start a design studio of his own.
Aad followed courses in art, design and craft at the Edinburgh College of Art, Morley College London and the Delft University of Technology. Before founding Mokkō, Aad worked as a corporate lawyer for 5 years in Istanbul, London and Amsterdam, while spending his spare time on art, craft and design.
