ArchitectMade | Penguin - Small by Hans Bunde
Hans Bunde originally created Penguin in 1954, one for each of his sisters. Penguin is made from beech wood and hand-painted. The back, painted in black, represents the silky feathers of the bird, and the chest is left unpainted to represent the white bellies penguins are well-known for.
