Description

Not only was Holm-Sørensen a pioneer in the field of Nordic lighting design, he was also at home in the carpentry shop, and Beak Birds is the endearing result of the designer’s experimental, creative approach to the world.

The Beak Birds were re-discovered recently in the attic of Svend Aage Holm-Sørensen’s family home. They now form part of his design legacy thanks to the close collaboration of Warm Nordic and his immediate family. These iconic birds will bring a smile to your face and add a Nordic touch to any modern décor.

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.
