With its good-natured look and its round, robust body, the Kay Bojesen wooden elephant has already captivated many a person. The cute wooden elephant is a real classic, both for children and for adults.
The wooden elephant is made of solid oak wood. Thanks to the high quality of the material and the excellent workmanship Kay Bojesen's legendary design provides play fun for generations. The wooden elephant is part of a collection of wooden animals designed by designer Kay Bojesen between 1935 and 1957. The Danish company Rosendahl Design Group manufactures the wooden animals today in close collaboration with Kay Bojesen's family.
Not only in children's rooms, but also on shelves and in offices, Kay Bojesen's wooden animals are now sought-after collectors' items that are passed down from one generation to the next. Therefore, the animals are made as a gift idea, wherever there is living and playing: Baptism, birthday, confirmation, graduation, wedding, anniversary.
Bojesen himself throughout his life has paid homage to the mantra that good design should be human, warm and alive: "They should remind you of a circus" , he usually described his works, of which the charming wooden figures are among the most popular.
Kay Bojesen, with his user-friendly and modern formal language, is one of the very great Danish functionalists. 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.
