Wooden duck by Hans Bolling for ArchitectMade.

Handmade of teak, this wooden duck captures the essence of Danish design

One particular spring in 1959 branded this image into the minds of the Danish population, as during rush hour in Frederiksberg a policeman found the time to stop the traffic in order to let a young Duck family cross the road. It was an extraordinary and meaningful event to the by passers to the point and all the newspapers published a now-famous photograph of the ducks. This moment encapsulates both the Danish attention to nature and detail and appreciation of small everyday miracles.

Inspired by the charming duck family, Hans Bølling designed a pair of small wooden duck figures. Their smooth, wooden curvatures are simple yet sophisticated and inspire serenity wherever they are placed, just as they did in spring ’59.
