Kristian Vedel Birds – Architectmade

from 80.00

Maker: Architectmade
Designer: Kristian Vedel | Denmark
Year: 1959

Kristian Vedel's 'Bird' Series perfectly captures the essence of Danish design. Though simple in appearance, its clean lines and elegant form create endless expressions by merely tilting its head in virtually any direction. It was one of the most successful Danish designs of the 1950's and is just as fun and enticing today.

Each bird is handmade by an experienced wood-turner in Denmark, and is available in natural and smoked oak wood. Birds look great on their own, or create an extended family with the different options available. The birds bodies can be overturned to create a new look and individual personality.

Designed by Kristian Vedel

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.
