The Pelican Table | Finn Juhl | 1940

The Pelican Table | Finn Juhl | 1940

The only known version of the Pelican Table was showcased alongside the Pelican Chair at the Copenhagen Cabinetmakers’ Guild Exhibition in 1940. Both pieces are standout examples of Finn Juhl’s profound affinity with modern art. However, the table was never put into production. It reappeared at an auction in Paris nearly 75 years later, allowing for the accurate design and measurements of the table to be finally determined. The Pelican Table is now manufactured in oak, walnut, Oregon pine, or painted in black.

About the Pelican Table

The Perfect Match to the Pelican Chair

The only known version of the Pelican Table was displayed with the Pelican Chair at the Copenhagen Cabinetmakers’ Guild Exhibition in 1940. Both the Pelican Chair and the Pelican Table are exceptional examples of Finn Juhl’s spiritual kinship with modern art.

However, the table was never put into production, and for many years the table was only to be found in the photo from the exhibition. However, almost 75 years after the exhibition, the original table suddenly reappeared at an auction in Paris, and the accurate dimensions and measurements of the table could finally be determined.

The Pelican Table is manufactured in oak, walnut, Oregon pine or black painted.
