Swan / Wooden figure


Discipline: Product

The simple and sophisticated wooden bird, Swan, is a sculptural decorative figure made of oak. Its simple shape creates both a majestic and understated expression, as well as adding character and personality to any modern interior. Just like a pictogram, Swan comes across with a distinct, almost nonchalant posture inspired by the swan. Swan has a rounded plump body and a long straight neck with distinctive edges. With neither a feminine nor masculine expression, Swan looks distinguished scouting out in the room. The material selected adds a warm and natural element to the design. Swan is an unavoidable new collector's item.

The Swan by Normann Copenhagen is a modern interpretation of the Danish national bird. The design allows no false pretense of modesty for the Swan, it does, however, present a substantial body and thus provides a solid grounding for the sympathetic bird. The lifted head gives a slight indication of the Swan’s sense of superiority but not without a touch of humor. The sculptural quality of the design and the weight of the oak give both the black and the natural-colored editions a central place in the Nordic interpretation of sophistication. Distinction by simplicity.
