About The Collection

The Pato Collection is the ideal choice for spaces designed for lounging, dining, working and living. With Pato, Fredericia’s legacy of detailing and craftsmanship meets today’s industrial standard. Pato’s polypropylene shell marks a new peak in quality and execution of the durable and 100% recyclable material.

The Pato series was introduced in 2013 and has since grown to become one of Fredericia’s most comprehensive furniture collections. By integrating recycled polypropylene plastic (PP) into our existing portfolio of products, we are taking further steps to help protect the environment. While at the same time, ensuring the continuity of design.

Pato has always been made from recyclable PP, which is pure and free from any additives. By adding upcycled plastic waste while keeping the design recyclable in the future, we follow our CSR strategy to minimise our environmental footprint and contribute to the circular economy.

The chrome plating complies with lacquer coating standard ISO 1456. The standard textiles offered by Fredericia for Pato all carry the EU Ecolabel. We offer textiles that have passed fire testing in accordance with the British standard BS 5852, and the California Technical Bulletin 117 upholstery test. All Frederica chrome tanned leathers are free of allergens and meet the high environmental standards of the German “Blue Angel” eco-label.

Welling/­­Ludvik

Designer

"YOU DON'T WANT A PIECE OF FURNITURE TO COME AND STEAL ALL THE ATTENTION. RATHER A CHAIR THAT JUST IS - ENHANCING THE SPACE INSTEAD OF DEMANDING IT."

Danish-Icelandic design duo Hee Welling and Gudmundur Ludvik prove that the basics can always be reinvented. With Fredericia, they combine their functional and human-centred designs with our vast experience to detail and material intuition that creates quality and longevity.

Welling/Ludvik create industrial design with an ambition to reach an optimum solution seen from more than one perspective- comfort, construction, material, price and environmental sustainability are always essential factors. They create modern industrial design that never neglects the contemporary technological possibilities and challenges in society.

For Welling/Ludvik, the focus on rationality of production is an important facilitator of design: "You should not drain the artistic freedom by only thinking in terms of production, but on the other hand, you need to know from the start, what it is, that you want to create."

Welling/Ludvik believe that good design has the ability to be interesting, even when reduced to its most simple form. Their design is characterised by pure and simple lines, where everything superfluous is removed, and where every detail has a function. These are classic design principles, in which the duo gives renewed life by focusing on the conditions for production, the innovation of material, and market needs of today.

Gudmundur Ludvik is a trained carpenter, who studied sculpture at the Icelandic Academy of Arts and furniture design at the Danish Design School in Copenhagen. Hee Welling trained in his father’s carpentry business, as well as studied sales during his time there. He is also a graduate in furniture design from the Danish Design School. Welling/Ludvik and Fredericia’s first collaboration was the versatile plastic-chair PATO, launched in 2013.
