In 1959, a Danish police officer stopped traffic in order to let a young family of ducks across the road. Inspired by the newspaper photographs, Hans Bøling designed duck and duckling figures to playfully commemorate the event. Now icons of Danish design, these birds exemplify the art of handcrafted wood. Click through the slideshow to see some of our favorite models, available in the Dwell Store.
Today, we kicked off this year’s annual Dwell on Design at the LA Convention Center, which will continue through Sunday, June 26th. Though we’ve been hosting this extensive event for years, this time around is particularly special.
