Pelican Stool

It has long been an ambition to create a chair that offers the very best in seating comfort and yet is not only lightweight and stackable, but also made from recycled materials.

Pelican which was launched spring 2020, designed by Johan Lindstén, and is a sleek-looking chair with gently rounded lines produced by recycled plastic materials. 

Pelican is the first chair in Sweden to be awarded the EU Ecolabel. We consulted with experts from the plastics, recycling and manufacturing industries at an early stage of the development process, using their collective input to create the best possible foundation on which to build a successful project. The recycled plastic comes from a Swedish supplier.
