In the beginning there was movement and a production process. The most striking feature of the chair PELLE is its freely suspended seat.
For designer duo Lorenz+Kaz, it was the inspiration behind the concept of their installation for the FEATURED EDITION. Hence, the basic theme was found -swinging seating- and an illusion to the ultimate representative of this concept: the swing carousel. When we were thinking about the design of the carousel, we considered how to incorporate a representation of the production process of Pelle.
Both the initial development phase and eventual method of production of Pelle greatly involve the use of a five-axis milling machine. Hence, poetry meets technology, swing carousel meets milling machine, rotation meets rotation.
Curated by STYLEPARK, the FEATURED EDITION installation shows PELLE AIR from Lorenz+Kaz: The seat shell of the chair PELLE is featured as a carousel, alluding to an oversized milling head.
