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. Recognized as a thought leader in the design field, Kalon has won numerous awards in the U.S. and in Europe. Kalon’s work is best known for its strong focus on material and a zero compromise approach to quality and sustainability.
