Children are in the business of play. These little explorers have big ideas and continuously changing needs.
The Child’s Chair serves both the play and practice of these young explorers, offering a mean of developing motor skills through imagination. Not only is the chair colorful and flexible in use, its adjustable slots offer endless possibilities for work and play. The seat can be adjusted to make a high or low chair, or can be removed to make for a crawl space or cradle. If the smaller plate is added, younger children have a little multipurpose table for eating, drawing or playing.More informationMaterial

Never before produced since its conception in 1954, the Circle Bowl is designed as a perfect circle, yet visually creates the illusion of an ellipse. Wanting to put a spin on a traditional form, Juhl’s design embraces the beauty of symmetry in carefully thought out proportions. The sides of the bowl are precisely balanced, rising as much as they recede, creating perfectly corresponding lines of the bowl all around. The uniformity creates striking reflections for all things placed within.More informationMaterial

COLORFUL WOODEN BIRD SHAPED AS ANTIQUE GREEK DISCUS
Hans Bølling created Discus in 1961. The birds are shaped as a discus and are made in hand painted pinewood. The painted parts represent the colorful plumage of the bird, whereas the chest of the bird remains unpainted; revealing the natural qualities of the wood. The beautiful veins of the wood contrast the painted parts of the birds. The birds come in a family consisting of four members that can be placed in line in the window or on a shelf.

From story to object
A family of ducks stopped traffic in Copenhagen. We’re serious. It was in the neighborhood of Frederiksberg in 1959, precisely during rush hour, that a family of ducks waddled into traffic, prompting a police man to immediately stop all cars and pedestrians so the ducks could cross unharmed. This charming moment made headlines and wooed the hearts of all Danes, specifically Hans Bølling who was so enamored by the story that he was inspired to create the Duck family.More informationMaterial

The FJ Bowl is the smallest of the sought-after teakwood bowl series that Finn Juhl designed in 1951. It features the characteristic blend of organic shapes and balance between wood, form and geometric measurements that made Juhl famous. By contrasting the undulating pattern of the teakwood with the rim, Juhl uses design to further reveal the natural properties of the material at hand: depending on what angle you look at it from, the bowl changes shape, creating new relationships at every turn while slowly growing on you.More informationMaterial

At first glance, the Mermaid reminds us of the famous Hans Christian Andersen fairy tale that most people associate with Denmark.

Half empty or half full?
Architect Hans Bølling designed these two characters that exemplify the duality in each of us: ying vs yang, happy or sad. Their carefully designed bodies are only different in demeanor, revealing the power of expression in defining one as an Optimist and the other a Pessimist. Together the Optimist and Pessimist embody the balance, and reality, of life.More informationMaterial
