Here are some photos that I took at home last weekend for a French TV show that will air this autumn. They asked me, among other things, to present a favourite object... I chose BIRD, created by Danish industrial designer Kristian Vedel in 1959.
J'adore son design intemporel et ludique: inclinez sa tête pour lui donner des expressions différentes - joyeux, triste, curiuex... - et tournez son corps pour lui donner une apparence plus féminine ou masculine.
I love its timeless and playful design: tilt the head to give the bird different expressions - happy, sad, curious... - and turn the body upside down to give it a more feminin or masculin appearence.
The Bird family has become an icon for Danish design from the 50's/60's, and is still handmade by a wood turner in Denmark. My own Bird follows me since a long time, but you can also find it in my shop.
