Rufus is the latest addition to the dog pack. His large scale makes the smaller Oscar and Bobby look like puppies in comparison. Designed with Hans Bølling’s characteristic humor, Rufus can be arranged to imitate everything a normal dog can do. From sitting to begging to playing or crawling, his personality shines through, making him a joyful companion for everyday (without having to take him out for a walk!).

Rufus has been handcrafted from oak and features smooth, rounded forms and exaggerated leather ears. He is cute and elegant, making him a charming addition to a desktop, display area or child’s bedroom.

Designed by Hans Bølling

Hans Bølling was born in Brabrand, Denmark in 1931. His now iconic and much loved work is known for its play, humor and wit. After training as an advertising designer, Bølling’s interest in architecture drew him back to school for a second degree.

Early in his new career he began to craft small figures as gifts for his wife, family and friends. The precision and personality in his objects paved the way for success as he quickly began to sell the wooden figures to stores.
