Jacob Hermann
Year
1958

Jacob Hermann created the first Twirling Bird in 1958 with a mixture of artistic sensibility and great empathy. The first of many birds created out of the bits of wood and even roots, which he found on the beach at Skagen in Northern Denmark. The basis for Jacob Hermann’s design was wood as a living material with warmth and soul, and he handled each bird many times during the process until it was ready to depart from the carpentry workshop.

In the 1950s, Jacob Hermann’s birds were exported to countries such as Japan, France and the United States via Den Permanente, which was a gateway to the world for the very best of Danish arts and crafts. Warm Nordic has specially selected four Twirling Birds as a tribute to iconic Nordic design that invests modern décor with history and depth.
