Melding luxury and sustainability, London agency FormRoom developed the concept and design for Kailo.

Kailo is a loose translation of the Indo-European word for “health.” The studio drew inspiration from the Roman era. The selections of materials reflect both the Roman aesthetic and sustainable ethos via the use of era-specific materials like obsidian and tadelakt (plaster). The ancient materials were combined with recycled stone, marble and altrock surfaces with the aim of using 80% sustainable materials throughout the design, according to the agency.
