Kalon Studios was founded in Los Angeles in late 2007 by husband-wife design team, Johannes Pauwen & Michaele Simmering shortly after the birth of their first child. Unable to find a crib that met their needs in terms of design and sustainability, Johann and Michaele decided to make their own. Within a year, Kalon was named by Time magazine as one of the 100 most influential green companies in the world. Kalon’s pieces have become cult favorites amongst international creatives, sought out for their casual chic appeal and the company’s rigorous, transparent ethics. Kalon’s work is best known for its strong focus on material and a zero-compromise approach to quality and sustainability.
Kalon Studios works primarily with natural materials, embracing the unique character and color of natural materials as an integral part of design. They value the playful relationship between the inherent variations of natural materials and the precision of contemporary form.
