Birds by Kristian Vedel
Danish architect Kristian Vedel designed his classic family of birds in 1959, and they quickly became one of the most successful timber toys in Denmark. Today, the birds are manufactured by ArchitectMade and are still handmade by a small wood turner in Denmark. They remain an icon of Scandinavian simplicity in design.
