Kleo Dining, The Wasted Oil Barrels and Its Simplicity

Tuesday, 12th February 19

Before we start everything, we should warn you that next week we will not talk about our collections. We stop for a while to avoid your bored, don’t worry we still tell you our story, surely you will like it.

So let’s count, how many collections we already told you the story? Today we have the popular KLEO Dining. So if we’re not wrong, this will be 7th collections.


Meet The Industrial Dandy

KLEO Dining’s first item was KLEO Chair that made from abandoned waste oil barrels (some called it drum). People usually turn it into furniture by keeping the shape of a barrel tube. They just cut it half, put some legs, added cushion, then used it as a couch. But KLEO, we want something different and extraordinary. So instead of kept the shape, we cut and straightened it. These straightened oil barrels became new materials that could be used for any furniture design.

The first trial, we used it to make a chair, combined it with iron pipe as a final touch. These unexpected materials gave a nice industrial looks in a simple and clean chair design. We’ve got the materials and the design, then we made the lovely chair. But that was not enough. We developed more items in the same design, but this time we use boat wood and iron perforate. If the barrels are industrial look, this fantastic couple offer a dandy fanciful chair.

KLEO always keep the good quality of each items. Just so you know, all of these KLEO Dining’s items had passed the Domestic Seating Test, that means their constructions are safe to use, and by the way we have the licences.


Hello Mr. Popular

Some people also called this KLEO Dining collection as KLEO Chair. Actually, whatever they called it, one thing that sure is they all like it. As their request, we used this collection in many interior project, cafe, hotel, etc. But it’s not only that, almost every containers that we sent every week were included with KLEO Dining collection. It’s always been a crazy time for us, but it’s a crazy that we enjoyed.


The Indescribable One

It’s kind of hard to describe the looks of KLEO Dining in words. We value simple design of KLEO Dining, they fulfills all the essentials function and none of the things that don’t. If our words are sounded familiar, it’s probably because you’ve heard about the 10th point of “10 Principle of Good Design” by Dieter Rams.
“Good design is as little design as possible : Less, but better - because it concentrates on the essential aspects, and the products are not burdened with non-essentials. Back to purity, back to simplicity.”


People usually gives moral lesson at the closing part. For today’s moral lesson is: to make a beautiful product doesn’t need a lot of accessories, just keep it simple they way it is. Well then see you next week.
