SOME OF THE MOST ICONIC IN DANISH DESIGN HISTORY
Kay Bojesen is the story of one of the strongest and most loved brands in Danish design history, with classics in a class of their own. A creative, playful world filled with love and high-quality sustainable materials, where nothing has been compromised. Through the beautiful and nostalgic wooden animals, Kay Bojesen has managed to create original stories in wood across generations.
Original stories in wood
When the Kay Bojesen brand was founded back in 1932, it marked the start of a story about a craftsman with a great sense of humour and plenty of curiosity. Kay Bojesen created his animals and figures based on the philosophy that good design should be accessible to everyone, and over time Kay Bojesen has become synonymous with original Danish design.
Silversmith and designer Kay Bojesen had a very special talent. He had the ability to bring wood to life, becoming world-famous for creating wooden animals with soul, humour and a twinkle in their eye. Kay Bojesen’s series range from the iconic monkeys to colourful birds and charming wooden figures, bed linen and toys for babies.
Produced in a limited number
In the summer of 2022, we designed two new songbirds, each with their own wonderful personality and pretty colours, and let a poll of thousands of Kay Bojesen’s fans decide which one should be added to the songbird collection. The result is Jackie.
Jackie is produced in a limited number and is engraved with the year.
We preserve and develop Danish design icons so that both present and future products can be part of the brands that have helped create our Danish design culture.
