BIRD

$69.00
Color: Natural
Style: Small

Turning Heads Since 1959

Now a legend, Kristian Vedel's iconic BIRD is the essence of Danish design. Though simple in appearance, its clean lines create endless expressions by merely tilting its head in virtually any direction. 

BIRD can express happiness, sadness, and curiosity, living alone or together as a family. The body can also be turned upside down resembling different body types. From child to grandparent, BIRD represents an entire generation.

Handmade in oak, its eyes are inserted with wenge wood and maple wood.

Functions defined by needs

Point of view and empathy define the work of Kristian Vedel. Greatly influenced by Kaare Klint, the father of modern Danish furniture design, as well as the German Bauhaus school, his now-classic modern designs are characterized by a creative use of materials, especially plastics and wood, and with a strong sense for ergonomic and functional requirements.

In an interview he famously stated, “The starting point for an architect’s work must always be that he, from his own point of view, and as objectively as possible, takes a position with regard to what he perceives as the needs of society and his fellow man; he must personally take a stand with regards to existing possibilities and responsibilities.”

Oak, Natural
Wood is a living material. This means that over time, if the material is exposed to sunlight or high humidity, for example, the colour may change slightly as the wood moisture content changes. In this case, we recommend sanding the products with fine sandpaper (preferably grain 220 or finer). This will also give the product a smooth surface again. To preserve the glow of the dark wood in the eyes, we recommend to use beeswax balm or furniture wax, applied using a cotton swab.

Oak, Smoked
Products in smoked wood will fade over time. To refresh the glow in the wood, we recommend to polish the product with beeswax balm or furniture wax, applied with a dry cloth first and then a lint-free cloth.
