This year, The Pelican, Finn Juhl’s distinctively formed chair, celebrates its 75th anniversary as Onecollection’s most successful Finn Juhl re-launch. To mark the anniversary, Onecollection has just launched a special artwork edition of the chair adorned with Asger Jorn’s drawing Macbeth. The generously padded Pelican was among the very first pieces Finn Juhl designed for his own home. However, when the chair was first introduced in 1940, the main reaction was one of astonishment and confusion. Initially, the name The Pelican was quite certainly not meant as a compliment. But now It’s considered a beauty.
