KleinHOME: Surviving the Test of Time
08/06/2017 - Klein Agency, an architecture, furniture and research studio based in Downtown Los Angeles, launched its new collection of furniture, KleinHOME, a collection that draw inspiration from traditional furniture archetypes, an exposé of simplicity of form and pureness of material.

The nine piece collection is Klein Agency’s first set of objects designed and fabricated in Los Angeles. Previously designing in Antwerp, Belgium, the husband-and-wife team - Maša and Jon Kleinhample - moved their operations to California at the beginning of this year, 2017.

KleinHOME is at once an exploration of precision through the process of laser cutting plate steel, and an homage to the imperfections of natural materials, such as wood and leather. Klein Agency, KleinHOME Collection

Captured between two industrially tooled plates of steel, natural materials, are elevated and expressed for their beauty and warmth of touch. The collection fits seamlessly in a domestic or commercial setting. With its use of robust materials, the collection is designed to survive the test of time, aging beautifully, in pursuit of a patina only achieved through the human touch through time.

Elegant in its profile, the collection sandwiches natural materials between steel, allowing the oak wood, overstuffed leather cushions or simple leather slings to shine in their minimalist beauty. Klein Agency, KleinHOME Collection

Imbued with both a technical precision achieved through translating a digital 3D model into a computer driven laser and a handworked simplicity in its wood and leather manipulation, KleinHOME positions itself delicately between a high tech and handworked aesthetic.

Each piece in the new collection is carefully crafted by a tight network of fabricators, all within a 20 mile radius from Klein Agency’s own studio in the Arts District, Downtown Los Angeles. Final assembly and inspection of all pieces happens in Klein Agency’s studio. KleinHOME has been released with a set of standard finish options for its steel, leather, and wood.
