Cuckoo is a study in whistles and flutes and the physics behind them. A demonstration of craftsmanship, a conversational piece. A figure that cheers up your desk at the office or breaks the ice around Scandinavian coffee tables.
Cuckoo is the result of a workshop called ”Tiny Product” at Carl Malmsten Furniture Studies. The assignment was to design a small wooden product suitable for series production and intended as a giveaway or for sale in museum shops, gift shops, etc. The product had to represent the values and the craftsmanship that the school stands for and introduce additional value to the material itself.
