The singing birds by Kay Bojesen are part of the legendary “wooden animal” collection, which contributed to the designer's recognition worldwide. The wooden birds have a pure, modest expression that still captivate us with its character.

The singing birds had already been designed by Kay Bojesen in the 1950s, but they were never serially produced. A manufacturer located in Denmark finally took the singing birds under its wing and made these little wooden animals available to design enthusiasts all over the world. Rosendahl Design Group produces the Kay Bojesen wooden animals in close cooperation with the designer's family. They are made from high quality oak wood and have gained a unique charm throughout the year.

Wooden Creatures for Design Enthusiasts

Kay Bojesen is considered as one of the greatest Danish functionalists with his user-friendly and modern design language. His innocent designs combine form and object, seriousness and fun. Bojesen has the unique ability of bringing wood to life which has made him into an international design icon.
The singing birds have a strong personality and are full of life, despite their simplicity: curious and attentive, they observe their surroundings with protective eyes.

Amazingly, the birds have completely different characters because of their colours. They create a unique imaginative mood. Full of soul, humour, and craftsmanship, this clever little piece appeals to the inner child in all of us. Also ideal on shelves or in offices, the wooden creatures by Kay Bojesen are now demanded collectors' items.

More details:

The singing birds’ family by Kay Bojesen carries a very special family secret: The single birds are representatives of the different generations of the family of the designer Kay Bojesen – from the grandchildren to the grandparents.

  • Kay: Singing bird Kay is named after the creator himself: Kay Bojesen. As fan of blue clothes, shirts or cravats, the feathers of the image of the designer are naturally kept in a friendly blue tone.
  • Peter: Singing bird Peter is an elegant, modern gentleman – as well as Kay Bojesen’s oldest of four grandchildren. As it should be for classic gentlemen, this one wears black clothes / feathers.
  • Ruth: Ruth is the feathered equivalent of Kay Bojesen’s Swedish daughter-in-law. According to her friendly appearance and hearty charm, Ruth appears in a happy, feminine pink.
  • Otto: Otto is named after the son of Kay and Erna Bojesen and their complete proud. Accordingly he appears with exceptionally special feathers to court his beloved Ruth.
  • Pop: Not a family member, but expression of Kay Bojesen’s love to Soda Pop, the singing bird “Pop”. In memory of the orange drink, that children like to drink by a straw-pipe, also the Pop bird is painted colourfully.
  • Sunshine: The singing bird Sunshine represents one of the five initial colour-combinations that Bojesen created. Sunshine as sensual image for the sun stands for the perfect start of a day, accompanied by sunshine and singing birds. The full green stands in this context for the hope of a soon spring.
  • Ernst: Ernst is named after Kay Bojesen’s father, who was the man behind the satiric publication “Der Tintenfisch” (English: The octopus). He was a famous editor, who transmitted a whole lot of good mood, fantasy and playfulness to his famous son.
  • Alfred is named after a grandson of Kay Bojesen. The Nordic name represents the innocence, which always inhabits the wooden figures of the Danish designer.

Iconic design

5 of 5 stars 2018-04-15, , Kay Bojesen - Singing Bird Alfred

Beautifully simple in their design they are a joy to hold and because there are quite a few variations of these birds they can be built into a wonderful collection which will last for years. Would appeal to just about anyone, any age group, nationality or sex. Lovely as a New Baby or Christening gift too. The head moves round too, so is even interchangeable if you have more than one of them. Highly recommended, beautifully crafted object.

Toy for my 2,5year son

Believe or not, I am very happy to give to my son a toy which has such a great details in finish and touch as the Singing Bird Kay. My son loves "him" and so do we when "Kay" is sleeping in his nest in the night :) I am just wondering how long it will last in its original conditions and how the "tear-and-wear" will affect it in time.
