WhAT’S In a Name
Komo is derived from the Japanese word Komorebi 木漏れ日, meaning light filtering through leaves when sun hits the trees. It’s a concept that both inspires and grounds us. Komo represents a natural philosophy of being, in which new ideas and artwork are constantly illuminated, with strong roots always in market data, expertise, and the art community.
