Alexander Pelikan approaches furniture design from a unique perspective where disparate materials can be used together to miraculous effect. What looks like a modern wooden seating with painted sections up above are actually a fascinating fusion of plastic with wood, created with an ingenious infusion technique that you just have to see to understand...

Here Alexander Pelikan gives an overview of the process with some nice shots of his pieces close up.
But even better, here Pelikan actually demonstrates his mesmerizing manufacturing technique, giving us all an insight into the work that can go into high-end, hand made custom piece. Watching Pelikan reminds us of the first time we saw chef-scientist Heston Blumenthal do his thing in the kitchen...truly out of this world and very different.
