Chimney sweep figure made of wood
It brings good luck to see them. Because not infrequently they disappear for many hours in the fireplace and come out again as pitch-black figures. Chimney sweeps are also part of the repertoire of legendary wooden figures from the Danish design icon Kay Bojesen. With a stylish and distinguished top hat and a detailed ladder in his hand, the nice chimney sweep gives a playful impression and can be perfectly combined with other figures by Kay Bojesen.
Legendary wooden figures from Denmark
Kay Bojesen is one of the great Danish functionalists with his user-friendly and modern design language. In his naive designs, form and object, seriousness and play merge into one. At the same time, Bojesen had the unique ability to bring wood to life, which has made his works international design icons.
The Danish manufacturer Rosendahl Design Group produces Kay Bojesen's wooden figurines in close collaboration with his family, using high-quality wood that gains in charm over the years. Throughout his life, Bojesen himself has paid homage to the mantra that good design should be human, warm and alive: "They should be reminiscent of a circus," he has usually described his works, of which the charming wooden figurines are among the most popular.
