Two of the most iconic milestones in Danish design history have joined forces to celebrate the smiling lines and cheerful stripes they have each contributed to Danish design. The famous Kay Bojesen Monkey was created back in 1951 when Kay Bojesen wanted to make a coat hook at child’s height so his children could reach their clothes. Instead, he ended up making a world-renowned Danish design icon. Now the iconic Monkey has got its own set of clothes. And what suits a Danish design icon better than another Danish design icon?
The medium Kay Bojesen Monkey x Nørgaard paa Strøget is made from FSC® certified teak and limba, measuring 11'' in height. You can get Monkey with the beautiful painted Nørgaard paa Strøget #101 T-shirt in either this white with black stripes or black with white stripes. Both colors feature the well-known red neckline, which you can only find on #101 T-shirts in this exclusive Nørgaard paa Strøget version in the store on Amagertorv in Copenhagen.
Kay Bojesen is synonymous with original Danish design. And the collaboration with Mads Nørgaard unites the love of durable and long-lasting products, while adding the playfulness and quirky quality that Kay Bojesen loved to add to his designs to spark the imagination and create original stories made of wood.
The iconic Monkey in new clothes is a fun and unpretentious celebration of both design icons, where with a twinkle in the eye we come together to pay tribute to the humor and smiling lines with Colors and stripes that go far back in Danish design history. Variations may occur in the stripes, but that is only because each monkey has its own unique personality. This is because the stripes are carefully applied to each Monkey x Nørgaard på Strøget through a handheld process.
