PELIKAN DESIGNER: NIELS GAMMELGAARD & LARS MATHIESEN

The Pelikan chair was design and launched in 1983 by the Danish furniture brand, Fritz Hansen. At that time the "cafe culture" was rapidly expanding across Europe and the chair became an instant success. Besides the timeless design it was a complete new way of thinking as it was intended to be heavy, making the chair stay where it is supposed to be ! And pioneering weather residence soft rubber as outdoor material for both back and seat also made it welcome into many projects around the world. Even after all these years the chair still stand proud in many places telling the story of what is meant by the term timeless design!

The Café line includes a chair, a bar stool, three tables and a transport dolly. The steel frames are available in galvanized finish or in white. The table tops are stainless steel. The rubber material for seat and back is called EPDM that is very resident to the sun and weather in general. Both chair and stool can be stacked - also in mixed stacks, upright up to 4 to 6 pieces or inverted on a transport dolly. The rectangular table can be stacked in a spiral and has levering screws. The two round tables have three standing legs and are therefore always stable.
