Hans Bølling’s Duck and Duckling

Architectmade, a Danish firm, produces modern Danish classics that were first introduced in the 1950’s and 60’s. They were designed by great Danish architects such as Finn Juhl, Jørn Utzon, Poul Kjærholm and Kristian Vedel.
One of their latest additions are the Duck and Duckling. The pair has been designed by Hans Bølling in 1959 and is made out of teakwood.

The inspiration behind them was taken from a special famous spring day in Copenhagen in 1959 when a policeman found the time to stop the traffic to let a duck family pass. It was such an extraordinary event that the newspapers published a famous photograph of the ducks.
