PELLE was founded in 2011 by partners Jean and Oliver Pelle. Their studio practice integrates artistic exploration with architectural integrity to offer an original collection of hand produced, professionally refined pieces. Driven by an exploration of new ideas, PELLE’s collections of lighting, furniture, and objects are continually expanding into different materials and areas of design.
Located in Manhattan’s Flatiron district, the PELLE studio currently comprises a lighting fabrication studio, a research and prototyping studio, and a dedicated showroom to display finished pieces. The intimate studio space is structured to support creative experimentation and active making, continually evolving in pursuit of new materials, methods, and ideas. Led by Jean and Oliver, the small studio team handcrafts each piece to order.
Jean and Oliver met while pursuing their Masters in Architecture at Yale University.
