'Twirling Birds' by Jacob Hermann – Warm Nordic

from 95.00

Maker: Warm Nordic | Denmark
Designer: Jacob Hermann | Denmark
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.

Designed by Jacob Hermann

Jacob Hermann possessed an innate love of wood and craftsmanship and pursued this love throughout his life. He was born on a farm at Viborg and was a silver medal-winning carpenter’s apprentice in the same area before graduating as a furniture designer from the School of Arts and Crafts in Copenhagen and studying painting at the Academy of Fine Arts.

At the Academy, Jacob Hermann refined his talent for drawing and painting and shared his knowledge with several other trend-setting Danish designers from the mid-20th century. As a passionate carpenter Hermann also built several houses for his family. Everything from the tiniest morsel of wood to the hugest chunk of driftwood was treated with equal respect.
