Highland Collection is a minimal furniture collection designed by Los Angeles-based studio Kalon. Named for the California uplands, Highland calls upon the rugged expanse of California’s oak-laden, golden hued hillsides. Made in generous scale and cut from solid oak, Highland’s proportions seek a balance between substance and elegance. In a nod to brutalism, the collection plays with slab-like cantilevered forms and imperfect curves.
Knobby flourishes call to mind the irregular character of the coast live oak trees endemic to California. These blunt shapes counterbalance the refined and clear precision of machining. The collection is built by a small team of master craftsmen in the northeastern United States using a mix of traditional and highly technological methods, and a 360 degree approach to sustainability. Pieces are finished with Kalon’s signature Bare Finish, a premium organic, natural oil-wax finish.
