Design and style from a Scandinavian perspective

Avifauna Birds

This is definitely more art than design and might not quite fit in here on the blog, but I just fell completely in love with these birds! They are made for Italian textile producer Rubelli by studio Maarten Kolk & Guus Kusters and will be shown at Spazio Rossana Orlandi, during the 2012 Salone del Mobile in Milan. Each bird has it's own expression, but they all seem to have quite an attitude!

Commissioned by Rubelli, art direction by Edelkoort ETC

    Interesting! The black ones look like they've been in an oil spill. The white ones look quite happy. /Lisbeth

    Hi Kit, I'm happy to see that you read my texts very carefully! Thanks for the pointer. However, English isn't my first language, and my focus is on making myself understood, and I think I was quite successful there, so minor spelling mistakes aren't really something that bothers me.
