Designed in 1959, the Ducks are a reminder of the Danish spring, with mother ducks waltzing proudly through Copenhagen with their young ducklings. One particular spring in 1959 left its mark on the minds of the Danish population, because during the busy days in Frederiksberg, a policeman found time to stop traffic to let a young family of ducks pass. This was an extraordinary and significant event for the passers-by, so much so that all the newspapers published a famous photo of the ducks. This captured moment sums up the Danes' attention to nature and detail, and their ability to appreciate the small miracles of everyday life. Inspired by the charming duck family, Hans Bølling designed these little wooden ducks, whose soul carries the essence of the peaceful and harmonious Danish spring. Their smooth wooden curves are simple yet sophisticated and inspire a quiet serenity and harmony wherever they are placed, as they did in Spring '59, in good condition.
