The Origins: Of Samurais and Constant Evolution
As the owner of Lana Kono, Lana bridges two worlds. Being half-Japanese with roots in the Kono Samurai Clan, she grew up in the multicultural and vibrant city of Berlin. Japan is renowned for its timeless and minimalist design, while Berlin continually reinvents itself, drawing on its history as a city full of diversity and innovation. Lana's leadership qualities are grounded in a deep sense of responsibility passed down through the legacy of the samurai.
