Pelle is a hybrid: half Italian and half Scandinavian.  On the one hand, it’s name is taken from pelle the Italian word for pelt or leather. On the other hand, Pelle  is the name of a character from Vacation of Scarecrow Island, a story by Scandinvaian author, Astrid Lindgren.

The chair has a semi-circular back and armrests which clearly reflect the language of Scandinavian design classics.  However, the seat is freely suspended and made from saddle leather with a unique leather-bound aluminum inlay. (The inlay stablizes the chair without taking away from the typical flexibility of leather.)  This sets Pelle apart from classic designs through certain nods to technological and design innovation.
