2012, the colourful Songbirds flew into the Kay Bojesen Denmark family, and 2013, we see the arrival of another feathered friend when Rosendahl gives us The Puffin. The bird known in Danish as the “sea parrot” because of its colourful bill may be Kay Bojesen’s most popular “forgotten” design, which he brought to life in 1954 in collaboration with scenographer Svend Johansen.
Spring 2013 was the launch season of The Puffin, which Kay Bojesen created around the same time as The Monkey, The Bear and The Elephant, but which differs greatly in appearance from the other animals.
Kay Bojesen Denmark
Kay Bojesen was a Danish designer, specializes in wooden toys. World famous are his wooden animals, but also his cutlery and crockery. With his paternal attitude, unyielding optimism and mantra that good design should be personal, warm and lively, Kay Bojesen could never be described as stiff as wood, quite the contrary! And yet, throughout his life, wood was his preferred medium, and the breadth of Kay Bojesen’s work is vast: from puffins and songbirds to rabbits and cool monkeys.
