Design for a Sustainable Culture
Los Angeles | Berlin
Based in Los Angeles, California and Berlin, Germany, Kalon Studios is a young design studio focused on contemporary form and innovative design.
Kalon Studios design focus is as much on quality of design as it is on method and process. All of our products are non-toxic, fully sustainable, and domestically produced in the United States. Each piece is handcrafted to order by traditional furniture makers in New England.
The ancient Greek concept of kalon meant beauty linked with moral worth and usefulness. For us this means making products that aren’t only beautiful in form but beautiful in concept as well. We believe that true beauty radiates from the whole but has its roots in the details and so from our hardware to our motifs, from our raw materials to our finishes we laboriously hand pick each element so that it too, alone, is kalon.
