    Fans of the more whimsical side of Scandinavian modernism will welcome the re-issue of designer Kristian Vedel's bird family through modern design purveyor Stardust, intended to represent three generations. Designed in 1959 and still hand turned in a small village in Denmark, each solid oak bird features a body and free-moving head that can be balanced to create various expressions while the body can be turned upside down to change the body shape. Each bird is handcrafted in Denmark and comes packaged in a small gift box, suitable for gift giving.

    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.

    Kristian Solmer Vedel graduated from the Danish School of Arts and Crafts and Industrial Design and continued to lecture at the same institution. After having been professor at University of Nairobi 1968-72 he returned to Denmark and became part of the Scandinavian Design movement. Influenced by Kaare Klint and the German Bauhaus school, his classically modern designs are characterized by a creative use of materials, especially plastics and wood, and with a strong sense for ergonomic and functional requirements. A typical example is his children's furniture, which could be adapted to a growing child and turned over to be used as a toy. In all respects, the furniture was designed for children according to their particular needs, rather than just being a miniature version of adult furniture. Kristian Vedel received many internaional awards such as the silver medal at La Triennale di Milano for his children's furniture in 1957.
