pelican chair

The subtle shape-shifting quality of Bertrand Clerc’s chair design is the very reason why it’s called “Pelican.” When someone is seated in the metal frame and stretch-fabric chair, the seat gives way to form the shape of a pelican’s lower beak. When standing alone, the fabric stays taut which makes the piece seem more like sculpture rather than furniture.
