Beak Birds brings a smile to your face. It was a hidden treasure that is now being produced for the first time. Each bird is unique and finds its ultimate expression in the individual piece of top quality teak wood. The look of teak varies greatly. It is a material that changes over the years, acquiring grace and patina. The four characters in Beak Birds cover a broad spectrum, from upright and curious to more solid and thoughtful. But for all their differences the birds are beautiful either together or alone. Beak Birds stands on a small, smoked oak base. Choose from four different designs, each with its uniquely engaging personality.

The unique Beak Birds was originally created by the Danish designer, Svend Aage Holm-Sørensen.
