Kay Bojesen

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. The monkey, the bear and the elephant are more than just wooden sculptures – Bojesen wanted to create wooden characters with a heart and personality. The animals are sympathetic and inspiring – perfect as a toy and also as a piece of decoration. Bojesen’s wooden animals were an immediate success and for this reason, the wooden monkey was exhibited at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London during the 1950s. Bojesen was awarded many important prizes, such as the Grand Prix at the Milan Triennale, and he was also appointed silversmith to the King of Denmark.
