The charming duo of the mother duck and the duckling does not fail to arouse sympathy, while being real design objects in their own right. These unique creations are both decorative and interactive, offering the ability to change the expression and posture of their swivel heads. Inspired by the work of the talented Danish designer Hans Bølling in 1959, the duck and the duckling tell an endearing story, inspired by a real incident that took place in the district of Copenhagen called Fredriksborg.
The story that inspired Hans Bølling dates back to a day when a policeman interrupted hectic city traffic to allow a family of ducks to cross the street safely. This simple, yet touching event captured Bølling's imagination and gave him the inspiration to create these adorable wooden figurines.
The mother duck and the duckling are perfect examples of the timeless Scandinavian aesthetic. Crafted from high-quality wood, they are crafted with meticulous attention to detail, giving them an elegant and polished finish. Clean lines and soft shapes capture the essence of nature and evoke a feeling of calm and harmony.
These duck figurines also have a playful dimension, because you can adjust the position of their heads as you wish. You can see them with curious, protective or even happy expressions, which gives them a unique personality and allows you to create different scenes and emotions.
