The only known version of the Pelican Table was first displayed with two Pelican Chairs at the Copenhagen Cabinetmakers’ Guild Exhibition in 1940. Reappearing at an auction in Paris almost 75 years later, the table's exact design and measurements could finally be determined. Available in a stunning Walnut finish, the Pelican Table has been expertly crafted to last for generations, perfect for placing next to a lounge chair or sofa.
Finn Juhl was born on the 30th January 1912 in Frederiksberg, Denmark.
Although trained in architecture, it was his modern furniture designs that made him an international name. His first pieces of furniture were designed for his own apartment and were manufactured by the young Danish carpenter, Niels Vodder.
In 1946 Juhl got his first major interior assignment at Bing and Grøndahl’s store at Amagertorv in Copenhagen. This later became one of his main works and was awarded with the Eckersberg Medal in 1947. Soon after, he was given the opportunity to help furnish the new headquarters of the United Nations in NY - something which established his name with the American audience.
