We design, produce and sell our collection of quality flat pack furniture in our concept store in the Westerstraat, Amsterdam. We use a single material (birch plywood with HPL top layers) and a single machine (a CNC router table) to create our flat pack pieces that can be assembled without the use of screws, nails or glue.
We aim to create a special bond between our customers and our pieces by offering them the opportunity to see how their piece is made by installing a CNC router table in a sound proof workshop on the shop floor.
The CNC machine cuts the individual parts out of the calibrated base sheets, we sand and edge them by hand before oiling all cutting surfaces for a premium finish. We sell directly to consumers through our store and our online shop and have a (very limited) number of resellers like the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam.
All design is done in-house, within a conceptual set of parameters: no glue-no screws flat pack construction, maximum sheet-efficiency and ship-ability.
KILO is Dutch design, made locally.
