U.K. & Northern Ireland
Koto is a multidisciplinary design studio serving clients in Europe and the United States. Founded by designers Zoe and Jonathan Little and architect Theo Dales, the team is united by a passion for Scandinavian design and friluftsliv, the Nordic concept that time in nature promotes spiritual and mental well-being. The word “koto” is Finnish for “cozy at home,” and the studio’s mission is to help people connect with nature in the comfort of a beautiful building.
Koto’s sculptural dwellings are characterized by a purely Scandinavian, minimalist approach and a slow aesthetic centered around nature, quiet luxury, and longevity. Biophilic living is encouraged through the use of natural materials and spaces that connect inhabitants with the outdoors. Designed to sit in harmony with their surroundings, each Koto home is crafted and delivered with utmost respect for the environment.
Their award-winning work has been featured in Dwell, Curbed, Dezeen, Elle, and numerous international publications. Partnering with Plant enables Koto to support U.S. customers while upholding the company’s high standards for innovative design, sustainable production, and low-impact installation.
A home should embody a dynamic relationship between nature, quality design, and one of life’s great luxuries—spending time with friends and family. "
