Brutalist Qualities Help the Highland Collection Attain Balance
Kalon, a brand known for their dedication to sustainability, has released their first collection in a year: Highland. Generous in scale, the solid oak furniture pieces – dining table, chair, bench and desk – look to the Brutalist qualities of cantilevered forms and imperfect curves for proportional balance. The occasional knobby detail calls attention to oak trees in northern California, which is where Highland gets its name.
A small team of master craftsmen in the northeastern United States build the collection, using a combination of traditional and high tech skills. Each piece is finished using Kalon’s signature Bare Finish, an organic, natural oil-wax finish.
Kalon’s sustainability efforts are present at every stage in the creation of Highland, from production to the wellness of their workforce. From raw materials to upholstery and finishes, the pieces in the collection take the environment into consideration through to end-of-life use. They’ve been designed to be versatile, durable and timeless.
