Brand Identity

BIOTOPE naming :
Life (bio) place (tope)

BIOTOPE is a place (tope) of life (bio) where diverse ideas and people mix and give birth to new and unique things. Picture a wetland area, a treasure trove of life; or a biodiverse forest in the subtropics. Weather, terrain, clean and muddy water flow, and diverse forms of life are all involved in creating an environment where new things are born and grow. We believe that also in the world of humans, cultivating such a place will allow small ideas and organizations to grow and flourish.

BIOTOPE Brand Mark :
The black of lacquer that stimulates the imagination, and the black of an expanding blot of ink.

We use the color black to symbolize deep ideas, and our desire to develop unexplored territories where light has yet to reach. The lacquer black in the lower half of the brand mark is like the black of Japanese lacquerware: a neutral color, yet it has a subtle shine when reflecting light. This expresses our will to stimulate the imagination. The black of the inkblot above it signifies an organic mixing with the outside, and a gradual outwards expansion. BIOTOPE developed this brand mark as part of our wish to help build a bridge over to the era of imagination and creation.
