Silversmith and designer Kay Bojesen had a very special talent. He was able to bring wood to life, and he became world-famous for creating wooden toys that had soul and an impish sense of humour. With more than 2000 pieces to his name, Kay Bojesen was one of Denmark's most prolific artisans in the 20th century. He is best known for his playful and cheerful monkeys, royal life guards and other wooden toys, but his wide-ranging production also includes jewellery, cutlery, teapots and silver goblets.
Kay Bojesen retained his childish curiosity and joie de vivre till the end. Kay Bojesen died at the age of 72 and left an important design heritage behind. A heritage that is now guarded closely by his grandchildren.
The Rosendahl Design Group is grateful to have been chosen by the Bojesen family to develop, manufacture and distribute their grandfather's popular designs. Since Kay Bojesen's legendary shop in Bredgade closed back in 1990, many of his products have not been in production. It is therefore with great pleasure that the Rosendahl Design Group is able to reintroduce several of Kay Bojesen's fantastic old designs produced on the basis of his original drawings and with great respect for Kay Bojesen's strict standards for materials and craftsmanship.
The Elephant was born in 1953. Kay Bojesen's imaginative family of wooden toys has a very special appeal for both children and adults. For christenings, birthdays, school leavers, anniversaries and weddings. A classic and a dear friend for life – from being a popular toy in the playroom to a much-loved design icon in a future home.
