Hans Bølling

Mermaid

Fairytales come true

At first glance, Mermaid reminds us of the famous Hans Christian Andersen fairy tale that most people associate Denmark with. Designed in 1960, Hans Bølling's character goes beyond the fairy tale and embodies an ethereal, refined feminine aura. Her carefully rounded shape and thoughtful lines offer a sense of serenity.

Mermaid brings together sophisticated and simple Danish design. You can create new expressions simply by turning her head, fin, body, or arms. The head can also be taken off to put the arms over the head. The lower part of her body is made of oak wood, while the upper parts are made out of maple wood.

Playful humor

Hans Bølling

Bølling’s work is known for its play, humor and wit. A passionate spirit whose practice and products are inspired by creative diversity, Bølling’s interest in architecture drew him back to school for a secondary degree after training as an advertising designer, growing his practice beyond objects to include villas, living complexes and town halls.

 Early in his career he began to craft small figures from botanicals as gifts for family and friends. The precision and personality in his objects paved the way for success as he quickly began to sell the wooden figures to stores.

Bølling won an award for the designs and invested the winnings into his own carpentry machine. The access to the means of production kick-started the production of Bølling’s now-famous Duck and Ducklings in the 1950’s. 

Years later, Hans still stops by the Architectmade office, checking in on his beloved products, his lively, cheerful spirit inspiring more ideas than we know what to do with!
