Kalon Studios was first launched in the US however in 2011, Kalon opened a base in Germany. Kalon Studios follows the philosophy to support local manufacturing so all the pieces have been made in Europe.
The word “kalon” is from an ancient Greek concept of “beauty which inspires excellence” For the Greeks this simply meant linking beauty with moral worth and usefulness. For Kalon Studios it is vitally important that each piece of furniture is beautiful in form but also beautiful in concept. The beliefs of Kalon is to take the overall concept from sourcing materials to manufacturing to packaging ensuring that their principles are strictly adhered to. Each piece of furniture is made by a small team of highly skilled traditional craftspeople in Europe using timber sourced from local, sustainable managed forests.
Sustainable solutions to the manufacturing process is another area of concern to Kalon Studios so much so they have not just focused on the newest forms of manufacturing but the oldest methods as well. Kalon will only use renewable, biodegradable, non-toxic and food safe. The wood is finished in an oil which is so green and non-toxic that is it practically a food grade.
