Throughout his career, Kay Bojesen kept up fast-paced production. Upon his death, he left more than 2,000 works in everything from silver to wood. In cooperation with the world-famous designer’s descendants, Kay Bojesen Denmark has maintained the same fast pace, continually relaunching Kay Bojesen’s most popular designs. This autumn, a new product category takes the limelight that will interest all petrol-heads, as Kay Bojesen Denmark brings not one but two cars out of the garage! The new cars have been created according to Bojesen’s original sketches and are available in two sizes in untreated oak and painted beech wood with a perspex windscreen.
Kay Bojesen created the sophisticated yet accessible car design especially for slightly older children who had grown out of clumsy designs on wide wheels and instead craved engine power worthy of a true superhero. Today, however, Kay Bojesen’s designs have long since moved out of the realm of toys and into the world of designer gadgets, where both the large natural wood car and the smaller painted Sedan stand to become cult collectors’ items for anyone who wants to liven up their home with a few select accessories.

Kay Bojesen’s Monkey was originally intended as a quirky coat hook for kids. Instead, the charismatic wooden figure ended up in the gadget category, and today the monkey is a design icon with fans all over the world. In recent years, Kay Bojesen Denmark has added a number of pals to the troupe of monkeys, and now once again there is good news from the family tree. This autumn, the brand is launching two more monkeys made from new combinations of materials – oak/maple, oak/smoked oak – benefiting from the recognition factor of their famous brothers, but at the same time making their own mark on Nordic interior design.
Even though this autumn’s two new products are twins in their design DNA, they are far from identical. Thelight Monkey swings directly into the Scandinavian Living style, mixing with new and old classics alike, whilethe dark Monkey makes itself at home with its exotic, deep colours harking back to the Monkey’s originsdeep in the jungles of design. The Monkey brothers share two important features: excellent craftsmanshipand exclusive, natural materials that give the design superb sustainability, as the timber takes on a trendypatina with age as only a true classic can.
Many design connoisseurs are all but in love with Kay Bojesen’s wooden figures. This is especially true of the jovial Santa Claus designed by Kay Bojesen in the 1940s, and subsequently revitalised much to the joy of everyone who loves Christmas. But even the busiest Santa can get lonely at Christmas and wish he had someone to enjoy the traditional Danish rice pudding with. That’s why Kay Bojesen Denmark is now launching a partner for Santa Claus, complete with her own wooden spoon, to really make the Christmas season a festival of the heart. Mrs Claus is a new design created true to Kay Bojesen’s design DNA in the image of Santa Claus and guaranteed to spread loads of Christmas love.
As a feminine model of Santa, Mrs Claus has the same smiling, lifelike wooden lines so typical of Kay Bojesen’s woodwork, fitting neatly into the crossover between fantasy figures and design objects. Mrs Claus is full of sweetness, too, and is sure to bring instant Christmas cheer as she arrives on desks, windowsills and nooks and crannies of wintry homes – as a supplement to her better half, Santa Claus, or on her own, as she starts her own traditions full of Christmas karma and girl power.
In the spring, when Kay Bojesen Denmark added a new category to the Kay Bojesen universe – the gallery products – the brand literally hit the nail on the head. Bojesen fans both new and old love the idea of displaying the iconic wooden animals as wall-hangings, and after the graphical zebra, we now have the chieftain of the menagerie, the Monkey, making its debut on canvas in four different motifs. The images are printed on canvas with a wooden frame on a leather cord, familiar from old classroom maps; in fact, the idea behind the collection is precisely to merge the joy of retro with modernity in a style that will grace any part of your home.
Just say the name Kay Bojesen, and many people will immediately answer “Monkey”. Even though Kay Bojesen designed a wide variety of things throughout his long career, including lots of other wooden animals, the Monkey is still at the forefront of his world-famous design universe – and its special celebrity status now gives the cheerful monkey an opportunity to become a photo model for a day. The result is the launch of three different photos and a photographed line drawing, as a second wave in Kay Bojesen Denmark’s new collection of gallery products. Its naïvist, human-like motifs are sure to touch the heart of all monkey fans.
Kay Bojesen really got around in the animal kingdom with his iconic wooden figurines, and his focus was not solely on the four-legged creatures. As a keen birdwatcher, Bojesen also created his own interpretations of several bird species, from the charming Puffin to the colourful Song Birds, the little Sparrows, and the love-struck Turtle Doves. Now the time has come to introduce another feathered favourite to the flock, as Kay Bojesen Denmark sends the Seagull aflight which Bojesen designed in 1954 for the Carpenters’ Guild’s jubilee exhibition. The Seagull comes in three sizes, and with its spring for hanging, it adds life to any window or corner.
Graphic prints are an ever-popular element in Nordic decor, as emphasised by the latest trend in interior design: the lithograph and the photograph. With its distinctive, monochromatic look, contemporary artwork adds personality to any home decor – just as The Monkey, The Hippo and Kay Bojesen’s other wooden figurines have done for decades. It therefore seems only natural for Kay Bojesen Denmark to now expand its product range to include gallery prints. The first animated image captured on canvas in the series is The Zebra, which has been interpreted in three motifs and canvas sizes: as modern photography created by the award-winning photography duo hagedornhagen and as photographs of Kay Bojesen’s own paper decorations and charcoal sketches.
Kay Bojesen’s family of wooden birds is a motley but charming flock. Little sparrows perched on a branch, songbirds on the terrace, puffins on the beach and turtle doves on the wedding table – Bojesen loved to create feathered creatures of all kinds. And now more birds are joining the flock as Kay Bojesen Denmark introduces two new miniature designs this spring: the Sparrow on a Stick and the Sparrow Couple. The new additions come in pairs that are ready to land in flowerpots and bouquets – and in the hearts of springtime lovers.
