Made by Kay Bojensen

Kay Bojesen retained his childish curiosity and playful enthusiasm throughout his life. Bojesen died at the age of 72 and left an important design heritage behind. A heritage that is now guarded closely by his grandchildren.

Kay Bojesen's legendary shop in Bredgade closed in 1990. Since then Rosendahl Design Group has been selected by the family to continue offering several of Bojesen's classic designs.

Each piece is based on the original drawings and has a great respect for Kay Bojesen's strict standards for materials and craftsmanship.

An item must have a soul, it must function properly, be nice to hold and a pleasure to look at

Kay Bojesen Animals

Designed by Kay Bojensen

Kay Bojesen (1886-1958) is one of the most important pioneers of Danish design. Trained as a silversmith at the Georg Jensen workshop, he designed several products in silver, such as cutlery and serving dishes, including his famous Grand Prix cutlery. Kay Bojesen worked with other materials as well and was particularly interested of exploring the possibilities of wood.

Best-known examples of Bojesen’s wooden designs are the wooden animals that have become classics of Scandinavian design. Bojesen’s wooden animals are still loved by children and adults as they were during the 1950s when they first appeared.
