The name Kalon is derived from the ancient Greek concept of ‘to kalon.’ To be kalon is more than being beautiful; it is having a beauty that both is and inspires excellence. For the Greeks, this meant a beauty linked with moral worth and usefulness. For us this means making products that aren’t only beautiful in form but beautiful in concept as well.
Kalon Studios believes that true beauty radiates from the whole but has its roots in the details and so from their hardware to our motifs, from our raw materials to their finishes, they laboriously handpick each element so that it too, alone, is kalon.
