Architectmade Chubby Bird

The simple yet expressive BIRD was designed by Kristian Vedel in 1959. Now a legend, BIRD is the essence of Danish design. 

Chubby bird is the Grandparent of the family. Though simple in appearance, its clean lines create endless expressions by merely tilting its head in virtually any direction. The body can be turned upside down making the bird either male or female.

Choose from natural or smoked oak.

Made by hand in Denmark.

Kristian Vedel designed his family of BIRDs - children, parents and grandparents back in 1959. Though only the small BIRD was set in production, it quickly became one of the most successful Danish wooden products from the 50s. Today, the entire expressive BIRD family has been re-introduced.

They are still handmade by a wood turner in Denmark who only uses high quality smoked and natural oak wood.
