The wooden zebra is one of the first figures of the collection of the Kay Bojesen animals. The zebra also moves in the unique gap between fantasy figure and design object.
The already zebra emerged long before the most famous Bojesen animal, the wooden ape. While this one saw the light of the world for the first time in 1951, the wooden zebra was created in 1935. This made it one of the first exotic animals from the Danish designer. The zebra galloped from the savannah directly to Kay Bojesen’s shop in the heard of Copenhagen. The charming stripes on it come from the artist Svend Johansen, who also equipped the puffin with the colourful feathers dress.
Wooden creatures for design enthusiasts
The zebra is made of massive beech wood and painted by hand. It doesn’t only complete the other wooden creatures from Bojesen, but it also looks gorgeous alone because of the reduced colours and shape.
The zebra is a wooden figure which will make children and adults smile equally, as well as all the other wooden animals by Kay Bojesen. Grown up design enthusiasts will love the iconic wooden animals, whose simple outlines are expressive and individual.Also in our blog:
