Back in 1959, Kristian Vedel designed a group of Birds that would express 3 generations of family - children, parents and grandparents. Though only the small Bird was in production, it quickly became one of the most successful Danish wooden products from the 50's. Thankfully, Architect Made re-introduced the Bird and the entire expressive Bird family is in production. Today they're all hand made by a small wood turner in Denmark using only the highest quality oak. Heads can be tilted to express happiness, sadness, curiosity, alertness and bodies can be turned upside down to exemplify different body types, etc.
