The KONO Manufaktur® journey started in 2014 with the crazy dream of starting a small film company from scratch. They developed and built their own machinery to remove the remjet layer of legendary movie film stock and their first two films were born, Rotwild and Kolorit 400T. A lot has happened since then, including launching 19 other films including the KONO! Originals line, co-founded the peel-apart ONE INSTANT project, worked with Svema to produce unique B&W films, and recently launched KONO!RAMA filters for Instax® film cameras. Each product is handmade and carefully packaged in Germany.
The second offspring of the Delight line is, just like the recently introduced 120 version, based on first class professional film stock. The new 35mm KONO! Delight ART 100 is a different size but has the same greatness. Intense colors, the finest grain and a very unique look. Each roll is carefully tinted by professionals. Handmade in Germany.
KONO Manufaktur® always takes pride in the craftmanship behind the production of our films. Nearly 30 years of professional experience working with film stock, gives them the know-how to design and build their film-making machines. They had to question everything we knew and rethink each production step to make the KONO! Delight ART 100/400 Medium Format possible. This resulted in a new device, it is still a made by hand and time-consuming process, but all crucial parameters are now completely digitally controlled. This ensures steady results and is at the same time as gentle to the film stock as imaginable.
