Natural oak Bird: To get a smooth surface again gently sand the product with sandpaper, preferably grain 220 or finer. To keep the dark part in the eyes dark, use “Bivoks balsam – natur”/“Beeswax balm – nature” with a cotton swap. Smoked oak Birds: If the dark color has faded we recommend using furniture wax from time to time to keep the wood moist. In our repair shop we use “Bivoks balsam – natur” / “Beeswax balm – nature”.
Kristian Vedel was born in 1923 and was educated at the Danish School of Arts, Crafts and Industrial Design, where he later lectured. Vedel’s designs are known for his creative use of materials, especially plastic and wood. In his award-winning and refined designs, Vedel typically places emphasis on the ergonomical and rational aspects of an object.
The simple yet expressive BIRD was designed by Kristian Vedel in 1959. Its high quality and timelessness have ensured continuous popularity ever since its launch. This Bird family is a bundle of the child, parent and grandparent. It can be ordered in natural and smoked oak.
The body is pear shaped and can be turned upside down, so that one can decide between having a girl or a boy BIRD.
