Pato and SILO from Great Dane


August 26th, 2013

Established in Melbourne in 2002, Great Dane Contract’s passion for timeless Danish design has earned the brand a reputation for service, craftsmanship, and expertise. The Pato Range  from FREDERICA and SILO Pendant by Zero Lighting are two products that exemplify Great Dane Contract’s commitment to the unique and modern.


Pato Range from FREDERICA

The Pato could be describer as “The Volkswagen Beetle in the form of a chair”; hardwearing, flexible and versatile. In addition to giving the chair its distinctive appearance, the slight curve along Pato’s edge ensures that the shell of the chair bends exactly where the body makes contact with the flanges; making it easy to sit on for long periods of time.


The simple feel of the chair shows its personality when put together in series, creating a calm and uniform image. The chairs are easy to connect and disconnect and are stackable after use. The slightly pliable back and silky surface of the polypropylene is soft in texture and environmentally friendly as well as highly durable.


The shell is available in grey, yellow, blue, black and white, and can be fitted with armrests and/or fully upholstered with fabric or leather. The frame is available in the same colours as well as chrome or matte chrome in sledge frame, four legs swivel base or barstool.

SILO Pendant from Zero Lighting

A small, iconic fixture inspired by the classical silhouette of a grain silo.


This shape was refined during the design phase to finally become SILO – a minimalistic pendant with a distinct industrial character. SILO, with its colour range of white, black, yellow and green, boasts versatility and adaptability with many spaces; it can be a dynamic pronouncement in a room or it can step back and complement its surroundings.
