Mermaid by Hans Bolling for Architectmade
Fairytales come true
At first glance, Mermaid reminds us of the famous Hans Christian Andersen fairy tale that most people associate Denmark with. Designed in 1960, Hans Bølling’s character goes beyond the fairy tale and embodies an ethereal, refined feminine aura. Her carefully rounded shape and thoughtful lines offer a sense of serenity.
Mermaid brings together sophisticated and simple Danish design. You can create new expressions simply by turning her head, fin, body, or arms. The head can also be taken off to put the arms over the head. The lower part of her body is made of oak wood, while the upper parts are made out of maple wood.
