finn juhl pelican chair with buttons

Design Finn Juhl, 1940
Solid oak or walnut legs, fabric or leather upholstery
Made in Denmark by House of Finn Juhl

Finn Juhl's fascination for surrealism is clearly visible in the Pelican Chair. Among all his designs, the Pelican Chair was perhaps the furthest ahead of its time. The Pelican Chair is produced in two versions - with or without buttons. Please note, some fabric options are only available on the version with buttons due to how the upholstery lays on the frame.

When the Pelican Chair was presented at the Copenhagen Cabinetmakers' Guild Exhibition in 1940, it stood out with its unusual animalistic shape and sturdy legs. Finn Juhl normally named his furniture simply after the year in which they were designed, but over time the nickname "The Pelican" stuck to the chair. Even though the Pelican Chair became instantaneously famous, 61 years would pass before it was put into production in 2001. The characteristic soft and organic shape is almost like a body holding a body. When you sit down, the chair practically gives you a friendly hug. Like many of Finn Juhl's later designs, the chair offers several comfortable ways to sit.

The iconic chair blends in perfectly with today's modern interiors. It is a perfect match for the Pelican Table and the Poet Sofa. Additional options such as a seat cushion & buttons in a contrasting material are also available, please contact Hive for assistance ordering configurations not shown online.

Finn Juhl

Finn Juhl aimed at a more organic and natural design form without role models or inherited restrictions. He designed by measuring his own body and analyzing how the individual components of the chair should carry the human body.
Finn Juhl’s design universe is a joyful journey of shapes, aesthetics and inspiration. These classic Danish Modern masterpieces are authorized, licensed & manufactured in Denmark with respect for heritage and quality.
