Tiergarten – which means “animal garden”, or zoo, in German – is the brainchild of Katja Liebig and Fred Fréty, who met as design students in Paris and discovered a shared passion for animals and nature. The duo’s inaugural collection comprises four minimalist animal sculptures: Odin the raven, Horus the falcon, Gaston the hedgehog and Loki the squirrel, with each creature’s form distilled to its essence. They are hand-carved in sustainable maple or beechwood (from €180 for a single sculpture; €342 for two; and €660 for the set of four), or presented in limited edition bronze (price on request).

The bronze sculptures are cast by the 200-year-old Fonderie Susse, in Paris – the same foundry used to cast work by Rodin and Giacometti. The pieces are finished by hand to create a satin patina or glossy mirror shine, and each bronze is numbered and signed with the foundry’s insignia.
