The Fin Chair is a mahogany and blackened steel chair that features a broad “fin” as its central detail. The structural frame, seat and silhouette of the chair offer an unusual combination of elements, joining the austerity of a simple steel frame with the warmth of premium wood. The seat is made of a solid mahogany that is polished and symmetrically joined, the grain of the wood drawing the eye towards the anchoring fin—crafted from matching mahogany. Juxtaposing this rich material with a minimal frame, the Fin Chair brings singularity to a functional design.
Fin Chair is a part of PAST PRESENCE collection, created by Jean and Oliver Pelle of PELLE, and antique dealer and jewelry designer Russell Whitmore of Erie Basin.
