Now a legend, BIRD is the essence of Danish design. Though simple in appearance, its clean lines create endless expressions by merely tilting its head in virtually any direction.
Created as a family, BIRD can express happiness, sadness and curiosity, living alone or together as a family. From small to tall, thin to chubby, child to grandparent, BIRDs represents an entire generation.
A truly timeless classic!
