C-KL stands for Collection Kai Linke. The label was founded by designer Kai Linke in Frankfurt am Main in 2015. C-KL is producing furniture, lightings and accessories with a particular aim: Within the objects experimentation is merging with utility, practical value with playfulness, familiarity with calculated irritation.
C-KL opens up a whole new world, which is surprising and easily comprehensible. The unusual shape of the products stems from the active experiment with the material, deeply influenced by new ways of production. All products are manufactured by hand in Germany, some of them being made by handicapped persons, supporting them in participating in social life and helping them to gain an independent living.
Founder Kai Linke has developed lighting and furniture for international manufacturers, objects for the public space, interiors and exhibition concepts for many years. His experience from these design areas has now resulted in the label C-KL. This way, Linke makes limited editions available to the general public.
C-KL's products are sold through this online shop, selected galleries, design shops, concept stores and museum stores.
