KODO Design


Our new KODO "Soul of Motion" design language abounds with graceful, yet energetic, lines. Like the effects of wind or the flow or water, KODO is a unique expression of power and beauty seen in instantaneous motion at the very moment motion begins. It's a cheetah pouncing on its prey. It's the moment a sword strikes in the ancient Japanese art of kendo. It's instantaneous power, speed, ignified tension and sophisticated beauty. And it's highly seductive.
