Chromed steel, metal frame, fiberglass reinforced plastic, polyurethane foam, polyester wool
Made in Germany by Vitra

L’Oiseau by Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec is a decorative wooden figure which has been milled from natural maple and sanded smooth. Reminiscent of the wooden objects in Nordic folk art, the design has an austere simplicity that avoids the cute or kitsch look so commonly associated with animal figures.

Motifs drawn from nature have played an important role in interior furnishings since the earliest examples known to us, and natural forms and structures have also been a recurring theme in the work of Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec. L'Oiseau, an avian figure of archaic simplicity, is reminiscent of the unpretentious artefacts of Nordic folk art. Its sleek form attractively enriches contemporary interiors without the cuteness or even tackiness so commonly associated with animal figures.

L'Oiseau is available as a wooden bird made of milled maple and sanded to a smooth finish, or as a ceramic figure in a choice of colours. Considerable craftsmanship goes into the fabrication of each piece, making it a unique object with individual characteristics.
