The decorative pigeon is a metaphor of the carrier pigeon and a caring message from DAM - always happy to welcome you. Its name - Colombo - is inspired by the etymology of pigeon (“columbus”) and also in the navigator and explorer Cristóvão Colombo. The Colombo pigeon flies by day and by night, expressing the desire to explore and be inspired beyond borders. The desire to never stop flying through the world but always valuing its roots.

Colombo's shape is casted from a piece of solid cork. The beak and paws in metal with finish copper contrast with the textured and rustic aspect of the natural cork. The tactile and visual features of Colombo makes it an irresistible object. You can use on the desk, in the bedroom or wherever the imagination takes you. You can use as a pincushion for post-its, for “anti-stress” or simply as a decorative object.
