"To thank Jasper Morrison for supervising my diploma project, I gifted him one of the prototypes of the birds I had made. I didn't expect him to appreciate my gift so much that he showed it to Emeco's owner Gregg Buchbinder. Thanks to Jasper and Gregg's support, my little side project has evolved into an actual product, and these aluminum birds have now found their perfect home as a part of the Emeco family."

"Inspired by Enzo Mari’s Nature Series (Serie della Natura), I tried to design a project to express the formal quality of birds with minimal elements through a precise and cost-effective process. Each bird in the Birds family - sparrow, blackbird, pigeon - is crafted from laser-cut aluminum sheets. The result is a sleek and elegant object that captures the essence of the bird's form." - Yun Li
