Superstudio in Dubai features this Pelle chair designed by Lorenz+Kaz for Zeitraum. Pelle chair looks elegant, spacious, and its semi-circular back and arm rest reflect the design language of Scandinavian classics: Pelle (in Italian: skin, leather; the name of a character in Astrid Lindgren‘s, Vacation on Seacrow Island‘) is the name of the refined new entrant to the contemporary range of chairs.The special thing about Pelle: Its freely hanging seat made from core leather. It is also refined in the leather-bound aluminium inlay used for the shaping of the seat. This solution stabilises the chair without taking the flexibility of leather away from it. In design terms, the merging back and arm rest is its stand-out feature.

Meet the Creator

"Nordic temperament meets Mediterranean culture. The Milanese design Studio Lorenz + Kaz, was founded in 2001 by Catharina Lorenz and Steffen Kaz, both German designers living and working in Italy since the mid Nineties. What characterises their creativity is their sustained quest for perfection and a hybrid “nordic- italian” imprint of their designs; aware of its origins and always willing to transform and evolve into something new and innovative. The international multidisciplinary team is working in the fields of furniture design, industrial design, exhibition and interior design, brand installations and graphic design with a special focus on art direction.

Renowned firms and brands like De Padova, Alcantara, Karl Küfner, DuPont™ Corian®, General Motors, Colé and Rossin have all confided in the skills and creativity of Lorenz + Kaz. Furthermore, the designers’ projects are part of the collections of companies like Zeitraum, OmniDecor®, Antonio Lupi, Sitap and Bedont. Beyond these prestigious collaborations, Catharina Lorenz and Steffen Kaz are designing, producing and commercialising their own Lorenz + Kaz branded collection.
