The Kay Bojesen Monkey - Between Fantasy Figure and Design Object

The wooden monkey by Kay Bojesen, with its sweet face and light coloured belly, has been transforming children's bedrooms into rainforests since 1951, inducing peaceful dreams. The excellent workmanship and the quality of the wood will delight many a generation of children.

The wooden monkey is a part of the wooden animal collection designed by Kay Bojesen between 1935 and 1957. Today, the Danish company Rosendahl Design Group manufactures the wooden animals in close cooperation with Kay Bojesen's family.

On television, the Kay Bojesen wooden monkey has served as a mascot for nature programs and received a permanent place as a prize on quiz-shows. In 2008, the cheeky little monkey even became the embodiment of Danish design according to design-bible Wallpaper. Together with the other wooden animals by Kay Bojesen, the monkey 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.

A Wooden Monkey with Character

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.

Couldn't wait to get this little guy , he looks amazing with the bigger ones too. It would be a good unusual christening/baby present or just a really cool little friend for your desk or bedside table! Comes in the usual Kay Bojesen packaging so will arrive in perfect order. Another heirloom of the future. Not sure if this is a special for a short time so get one while you can!

Tanta attesa per averlo e molta delusione all'arrivo.

Questa versione mini è stata prodotta in quantitativi molto ridotti e pertanto ho dovuto attendere diversi mesi per ricevere la mia statuetta. In passato ho comprato la versione Small (molto deliziosa) e successivamente la versione medium (stupenda) ma questa statuetta mini, lascia interdetti ed amareggiati. Decisamente piccolissima e troppo delicata nelle giunzioni. Il costo è decisamente alto e non giustificabile.

I'm wishing to have this little monkey in my hands. I've seen it so many times in magazines, books and on the web... I couldn't stand another day without having it. My children too.

Ad oggi ho comprato tre esemplari con tre grandezze diverse. Ogni oggetto può arrivare con sfumature e colori molto diversi. Ogni oggetto è un pezzo unico e può scatenare emozioni diverse. Ogni scatola può essere come un figlio.
