The wooden rabbit by Kay Bojesen is part of the wooden animals collection that was created by the designer Kay Bojesen between 1935 and 1957. The wooden rabbit possesses a pure, modern expression without any unnecessary shapes and delights both adults and children with its timeless design.
Despite not being a copy of the real animal, the wooden rabbit has a strong personality full of life: curious with pointed ears, keeping an eye on all of his surroundings. This is how the wooden rabbit took its place on the unique threshold between fantasy figure and design object. Full of soul, humour, and craftsmanship, this clever little piece appeals to the inner child in all of us.
The wooden animals by Kay Bojesen are not only popular in children’s room, but they are also passed down from generation to generation as collector's items or quirky little accessories on shelves. Therefore, the wooden animals are the perfect gift for every occasion: baptisms, birthdays, confirmations, graduations, weddings, anniversaries.
Throughout his life, Bojesen honoured one mantra: good design has to be human, warm and vivid. "It should remind us of a circus", he said, describing his work, of which his wooden animals are considered the most popular.
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.
