Hans Bunde originally created Penguin in 1954, one for each of his daughters. Penguin is available in two sizes, small and large, and it is made of beech wood. The hand-painted back represents the silky feathers of the bird, and the chest is left unpainted to represent the white bellies penguins are well-known for. Although extremely simple, Penguin is designed in a way that no one could mistake it for another species.
Nothing compares to the feeling of having found a treasure. One in which you can discover something new every time you look at it. Architectmade's collection of design objects are made by Denmark's most recognised architects such as: Utzon, Kjaerholm, Juhl, Vedel and Karpf. The architects design their objects through sheer passion for simple sophisticated aesthetics and functionality. This is where the appeal lies. The result of this process is a clear crystallisation and conceptualisation of the product in its purest, simplest and most refined form. It is this very characteristic essence of Danish design that binds together all of Architectmade's products.
Tradition vs. Innovation? For decades the iconic products have managed to overcome this intricate diversion and have created a sophisticated blend of the two, in light of contemporary modernity rather than passing trends. This philosophy has resulted in classically designed products, which simultaneously have long-term validity and longevity in their designs.
