PURIST VISION
A less-is-more approach speaks volumes for a sustainable-minded couple

When Kalon cofounders Michaele Simmering and Johannes Pauwen debuted a cleanlined crib featuring geometric cutouts in 2007, they set out to do more than just create a
new product. "It was a trial to see if we could be the change we were looking for," explains
Pauwen, who studied industrial design at the Rhode Island School of Design, "and through
the product, and company, create the world we wanted to live in."
More than a decade later, this approach to design remains at the forefront of the brand's
high-quality, minimalist furniture and homewares. Since making a splash in commercial
and residential marketplaces with their pared-down aesthetic, the husband and wife have
expanded beyond children's furniture, developing Belgian linen-topped sofas, glass-topped
side tables, and brass-accented dressers, among other pieces, that eschew decoration in favor
of fine wood, such as sugar pine, American ash, and black walnut in its natural form. Next
up? Their first outdoor collection, as well as new dining pieces.
Manufacturing takes place stateside, mostly done in New England by small woodworking
shops. This allows Simmering and Pauwen to be intimately involved in production to ensure
sustainability, intrinsic to the brand's DNA, remains at the forefront of every initiative. "We
consider the total impact our work will have on the world and then we make a decision about
whether or not it's worth doing, whether or not the world needs another thing," explains the
German-born Pauwen. "We want our work to be produced in a way that enriches, rather than
depletes, communities, trades, and resources." hd

Made from western sugar pine, the Rugosa collection
was inspired by Rhode Island's seaside homes
