Integrity and innovation go hand-in-hand with Klaro Industrial Design

Highly responsive and light on its feet, K.I.D was created to address the need for commercially focused suppliers with a commitment to careful, enduring craftsmanship.

Klaro Industrial Design has a unique philosophy and approach to the processes of design. Focused on developing quality over quantity, pieces by Klaro are engineered to hold their value for generations. Forging a new path forward, founder and designer Alona Klaro searches for products which respond to the ever-changing demands of the modern workplace – without sacrificing aesthetics or a local manufacturing network.

Klaro Industrial Design has recently set up its new HQ amongst the vibrant community of Sydney’s Inner West. A bustling heartbeat of human centric design, the new space acts as a go facility for K.I.D customers to invite their own clients to view options, get sign offs, and build community connections. K.I.D Studio is a unique space of experimentation and vivacious creativity where one is likely to find prototypes mingling with half cooked designs. Adorned with nature and elements of biophilic design, the workspace makes full use of the health benefits of natural light, air and plants to keep the atmosphere feeling bright and welcoming.

“We are looking to bring a “Slow fashion” philosophy and apply it to commercial interior products, to reduce landfill and support local manufacturing.  By spending the time to develop and nurture relationships with our makers, we can respond quickly to clients and fulfil briefs, knowing that we have done the homework for them.”

This commitment to quality and sustainability is visible in every stage of design – from intent through to distribution. Klaro draws on its multidisciplinary experience in sculpture, architectural design and commercial fitouts to provide a fresh perspective in its concise product range which spans across seating, storage and workstations. Employing a mindset of ‘borrowing’ rather than ‘using’ materials allows Klaro design to approach every step of production with sustainability and longevity in mind.

One of K.I.D’s most notable products includes the OBLONG desk, table and workstation system – a component based, dual origin system with remarkable configuration flexibility. Other unique pieces by Klaro Design include the Zero umbilical for its material circularity, the sustainable and biophilic Grove planter, and the incredibly soft EASY commercial grade chair. An added draw to K.I.D’s processes is that all of its pieces exist in easy to use virtual form – with Revit parametric families and SketchUp 3D models available on request.

“Our team feels it’s our duty to clients to ensure we consider manufacturing origin and materials, an items life span, its impact on the user and its final frontier.  Whether it’s a one-off custom item or a product from our range.”

Klaro diligently preserves the integrity of this ethos throughout several levels of the supply chain within the project procurement process, and has struck a firm balance between reliable production and ethical manufacturing. A unique take on the conventional wholesale supplier, K.I.D builds a sense of community among specifiers and responds to their needs.

“As part of our design process, we ensure our products are not adding any extra work to our time poor specifiers – instead we look to implement their requirements and provide a ‘slot in’ package for seamless integration to design, scheduling, procurement and delivery stages.”

The fresh, considered ranges of Klaro respond to rapid shifts in workplace demands and are introduced every year as a part of K.I.D’s commitment to pushing boundaries of adaptability. United by the signature visual language that Klaro products share, these ranges are highly flexible and ideal for designers, architects and the broader spectrum of project specifiers looking to incorporate diverse and sustainable furniture solutions within the commercial office fit out market.
