PELLE Presents ‘Far And Wide’ Exhibition

May 16, 10:00 am - May 23, 5:00 pm

Jean and Oliver Pelle of PELLE present 7 new furniture and lighting works that continue the studio’s wide-ranging exploration in form-making, painting, and drawn representation in a showroom exhibition titled “Far and Wide” opening May 16th.

In exploring ideas about painting pictures and containing memory, PELLE introduces the Carrizo Cabinet, a one-of-a-kind oak cabinet meant to hold more than one’s physical possessions. Central to the piece is a pair of cabinet doors that are paneled with original artwork by Jean Pelle – a 48″ x 48″ tiled oil pastel drawing of the Carrizo Plain in central California, a singular place within the memory landscape of the artist.

Hard angles and crude geometries permeate our everyday environment – metal ductwork, roof eave lines, industrial machinery – stolid forms that create a utilitarian landscape that we inhabit without choice but become familiar with. We have absorbed the utility to the point where they become sculptures. For this May, PELLE debuts Helm, a series of new lighting formworks with bold presence, built of heavy aluminum plates and expressive welded joinery.

The grid has always been a fascination. PELLE revisits it once again in a new pair of upholstered oak armchairs for the Quadrat collection, one of the studio’s earliest furniture series. A study of proportion and constraints, the Quadrat Armchair is an interplay of hard and soft lines, both informed by exactitude and ease.

The Lure Lantern 07 is introduced – a full-fledged version of the Lure Lantern 03 shown at last year’s Design Miami/ Collectors Lounge. A representation of botanical splendor, the Lure Lantern 07 is all about unfettered exuberance. Both an illustration and an illusion of a plant with a material quality that can coexist with us.
