PELLE is an independent design studio that combines the practices of art and engineering to create expressive design objects. Integrating artistic exploration with architectural integrity, PELLE offers an original collection of hand produced, professionally refined pieces.
Co-founded by Jean and Oliver Pelle in 2011, PELLE’s studio is located in Manhattan’s Flatiron district. With collections ranging from lighting and furniture to art objects, PELLE is continually expanding into new areas of design and materials.
Jean and Oliver met while pursuing their Masters in Architecture at Yale University.
The PELLE studio is structured to support creative experimentation and active making. Driven by the exploration of new ideas, the intimate studio space currently includes a lighting fabrication workshop, a research and prototyping studio, and a dedicated showroom to display finished pieces. The space is continually evolving to meet the needs of PELLE’s output, and is regularly restructured to accommodate new methods and materials. Led by Jean and Oliver, the small studio team handcrafts each of PELLE’s products to order.
