ArchitectMade Aves Decorative Birds
SMALL BIRDS, BIG THOUGHTS
Aves is created by Swedish architect and artist Co Derr. Co Derr was very keen on finding the essentials of the motive bird, and throughout his career he tried to simplify the shape of Aves until he reached a form, that could be perceived as the essence of a bird. In that way Aves stands as a testimony of the eternal essential shapes that lie behind timeless designs. Aves comes in three different sizes and they differ from one another. This accentuates the statement that there is something unique in the general.

The Designer: In the course of his career, Co Derr showed a passion for refined lines. He was particularly interested in the shape of birds, which was made evident when he designed the Aves birds. Co Derr was trained by designer and architect Le Corbusier.
Over the course of his illustrious career, Co Derr has won numerous awards. Among other things, he participated in the exposition of the Olympic Games in London in 1948 and was awarded an Olympic medal for his contribution. He also designed the “nesting birds” on the Dutch war memorial for the American Line ships. His work can be seen in several museums, including the MoMA in New York.
