Kay Bojesen's iconic Monkey was born in 1951. A little Monkey with the great personality. At Design Haus Gallery we have so much admiration for Kay Bojesen and the whimsical collections he has created. The monkey is imported from Denmark and is made of 31 separate teak and limbs-wood pieces. Our respect for each design heritage is reflected in our insistence on the overall integrity of our products, particularly when working with beloved design classics.This translates to our focus on using sustainable wood for the production of our Monkey.

Kay Bojesen graduated as a silversmith in 1910 after completing his apprenticeship with Georg Jensen. He was among the first to enthusiastically embrace functionalismin Danish handcrafts and he co-founded ‘Den Permanente’ – a showcase retail store that featured the best in Danish design for decades. In the 1930s, Kay Bojesen began to explore his interest in woodworking in earnest. Among other things, he created a series of wooden animals which fit with his belief that design should be rounded, soft and feel good in your hand. His intention was not to replicate true-to-life animals, but rather to create imaginative designs with a sense of humour. With the closure of Kay Bojesen’s legendary store on Bredgade in Copenhagen in 1990, several of his works stopped being produced. Now, it is a great pleasure to reintroduce a number of Kay Bojesen’s wonderful original designs, remaining true to his drawings and respecting his stringent requirements for materials and craftsmanship. Kay Bojesen died in 1958 at the age of 72, leaving behind a substantial design legacy. Today, his grandchildren proudly carry on his legacy.
