“We believe that business ethics, design aesthetics, and quality of materials don’t have to be compromised”
Kalon was founded in Los Angeles in 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. Named after their daughter, the Io Crib became part of Kalon’s first collection. (The Echo Crib, 2010, was designed and named for their second daughter.) Within a year, Kalon was named by Time magazine as one of the 100 most influential green companies in the world.
