Hans Bølling created Discus in 1961. The birds are shaped as a discus and are made in hand painted pinewood. The painted parts represent the colorful plumage of the bird, whereas the chest of the bird remains unpainted; revealing the natural qualities of the wood. The beautiful veins of the wood contrast the painted parts of the birds. The birds come in a family consisting of four members that can be placed in line in the window or on a shelf.

The FJ Clock was designed as a part of the interior of the New York United Nation Trusteeship Council Chamber in 1950 and it captures the essence of Juhl’s design aesthetic. The circular shape complementing the natural qualities of the teak wood and the numberless aluminum dial captures his flair for clever minimalism.
Diameter 34cm.

Oscar was designed with the characteristic joy and care in Hans Bølling’s mind, and the little dog is a token of fun and playfulness. Oscar’s body can be arranged so that he does everything a normal dog would. He can sit, scrawl, stand, beg or even sulk in the corner if you have been away from him for too long.
 
He is, however, no ordinary dog. The highly specified and elaborate details of Oscar’s body add a sophisticated dimension to his form. Every angle, curve and bend has been craftily thought out over the span of a couple of years to convey a highly stylized, yet harmonious aesthetic object.
 
Oscar is an elaborately designed dog with a flair for refined simplicity, which makes you look twice. Oscar was designed in 1953.
The Ducks are reminiscent of Danish spring, with mother ducks waltzing proudly around Copenhagen with their young ducklings. One particular spring in 1959 branded this image into the minds of the Danish population, as during the busy days in Frederiksberg a policeman found the time to stop the traffic in order to let a young Duck family pass. It was an extraordinary and meaningful event to the by passers to the point that all the newspapers published a famous photograph of the ducks. This captured moment encapsulates the Danish attention to nature and detail and the ability to appreciate small everyday miracles.
 
Inspired by the charming Duck family, Hans Bølling hence designed a pair of small wooden Duck figures, whose souls carry the essence of peaceful and harmonious Danish spring. Their smooth, wooden curvatures are simple yet sophisticated and inspire subdued serenity and harmony anywhere they are placed, just as they did in spring ’59.
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 all handmade by a small wood turner in Denmark who only uses high quality smoked and natural oak wood. By tilting their heads in virtually any direction, the BIRDs can express every frame of mind - happy, sad, curious, alert, etc. The bodies can be turned upside down making it either a male or female.
