Kay Bojesen (1886-1958) is recognised as one of the most important pioneers of Danish design. Training as a silversmith at the Georg Jensen workshop he was then inspired, after the birth of his son Otto, to create wooden children’s toys. And this is where his story as one of Denmark’s most prolific artisans perhaps began. Bojesen’s toys have soul and an impish sense of humour, he brings wood to life. All his animals are incredibly playful and as such are enjoyed by both children and adults alike. You can’t help but play with them, and there lays their beauty- they bring out a bit of cheekiness in all of us.
Bojensen is perhaps best known for his cheerful wooden monkey’s, originally designed as a hook for children’s coats. They were exhibited at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London during the 1950s. The monkey is available in three different sizes featuring various stained woods; however be assured no matter the size you choose they have just as much charisma and charm as each other. These Monkeys are timeless design, little characters in themselves, and will accompany a child into adulthood and throughout life.
