A prototype of the Pelican Table was shown at the annual Copenhagen Cabinetmakers Guild Exhibition in 1940. It was presented together with the now iconic Pelican Chair. Both the Pelican Chair and the Pelican Table are evident results of Juhl’s affinity with sculpture – particularly with surrealism and cubism.

Pelikan is a marvellous piece of design which beckons to every beholder. Its organic form is a good example of the way in which Finn Juhl has been inspired by modern ”free art”. Typical of Finn Juhl, the Pelikan is very comfortable and manufactured according to best craftsmanship traditions with hand-sewn upholstery. The legs come in several types of wood.
