Aves Brass Birds Trio

Add to

AVES is the Latin word for birds. It is also the name of the family of brass birds created by Dutch architect and artist Co Derr. Co Derr was very keen on finding the essential shapes that blend with his surroundings. He was particularly concerned about finding the essentials of the motive bird, and he spent his entire career simplifying the shape of the Aves Brass Birds Trio until he reached a form, that could be perceived as the essence of a bird. In that way, the Aves Brass Birds Trio stands as a testimony of the eternal essential shapes that lie behind timeless designs.
