Ardeola: contemporary design pieces

 

The name Ardeola (the official latin name of the pond heron bird) dates back to the childhood of Ercsényi Miklós, when his grandparents had a sculpture that formed a very slender heron bird with its beam pointing up to the sky – all carved from one single wood. Later this sculpture became of Ercsényi and he has chosen it to be the logo of their company. The sculpture has finally got broken but the name remained.
