Description from Design Within Reach
“A chair is not just a product of decorative art in a space,” wrote Finn Juhl, “it is a form and a space in itself.” Beautifully demonstrating this idea is his Pelican Chair (1940), with its graceful curves that befriend the body and wrap the sitter in its embrace. There’s also a natural quality to this organic form, as if echoing a plant in the landscape or rolling ocean waves. Being a true sensualist, Juhl created his furniture to be comfortable, made with the best craftsmanship traditions and showing an appreciation of materials. This original is an authentic, fully licensed product of Onecollection, House of Finn Juhl™. Made in Denmark.
