why this product

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.

production & design

Hans Bølling was inspired by the parrot and this led him to create the Discus Bird. The parrot is Hans Bølling’s favorite bird and throughout his career as an architect he marked all of his architectural drawings of buildings, town halls, villas e.g. with a discrete parrot hidden in the background. This personal and humoristic signature has found its shape in The Discus Bird and in that way it embodies Hans Bølling’s saying: “I play as long as I live, and live as long as I play.”
