KATAKANA was formed in the winter of 2012 in New York by Japanese and English Ceramicists Shino Takeda and Romy Northover. 

Shino and Romy's design/lifestyle collaboration takes on projects that reflect their energy through ceramics, accessories, homewear design and supper clubs. 

Katakana is the Japanese character set that is used for transcribing foreign and western language ~ 'kata kana' means 'shape?'. The KATAKANA NY project is a combination of Japanese, European sensitivity with an NY beat - A space for exploration with a shared vision.
