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 and material technologies, PELLE’s collections of lighting and furniture are continually expanding into different areas of design.
Located in a historic brick manufactory building along Brooklyn’s Red Hook waterfront neighborhood, the PELLE studio is housed in a 10,000 square-foot space which is comprised of several departments. There is a lighting fabrication studio, a materials-research and design-prototyping studio, and a dedicated gallery for the display of finished works. The expansive studio space is structured to support creative experimentation and active making, continually evolving to support the needs of the studio’s output. Led by Jean and Oliver, the small studio team handcrafts each piece to order.
