ABOUT ROMI COHEN
Kamaro Z began in 2017 by Israeli designer Romi Cohen. As a kid, metal filled her backyard. She was constantly fascinated by the heavy weight, sharp edges, and rough details. Through her life experience, she turned this fascination into her work. Expressing deep emotional experiences into metal. That is when her craving for creating armor became a necessary therapy.
Romi designs modern, edgy, and sharp architecture in her metal. Each piece is handmade and crafted in her studio in Los Angeles. She is constantly inspired by her ability to feel. A surges of emotion and she can be found in her chair expressing exactly how she feels. Romi defies the common belief that we should fear emotions, rather she makes them her strength.
"I can’t explain that rush. When I'm making a new piece. My drive to create with my hands what I see in my head is unstoppable. Raw self thought. Vivid details. I love the whole process. The smell of the melting wax, the burns from the heat, and the cuts on my hands reassure me that this is my purpose. Kamaro Z is who I am. It’s the protector to my soul."
