Kay Bojesen: Wooden Lovebirds
Rosendahl, Denmark.

Special: $108.99 instead of $160.00

Kay Bojesen's wooden Lovebirds (two-piece set). Together with Bojesen’s other wooden figures, the Lovebirds are placed in the unique crossroads between imaginary figure and design object. Full of soul, humour, craftsmanship and with a twinkle in their eyes – and thus appealing to the child in all of us. Ideal for all special occasions: Kay Bojesen created his wooden figures with love, imagination and intelligence. Today his classic designs are found in countless Danish homes -whether in the children’s rooms, on the shelf or at the office since the animals are much sought-after collectables that are passed down through the generations. This is what makes Kay Bojesen’s designs the ideal gift, wherever life is being lived and played. This classic design figure comes packed in a beautiful gift box.

Believe it or not but the beautiful Bojesen Lovebirds were designed in the 1950s. With his practical and contemporary design language, Kay Bojesen is one of Denmark’s greatest functionalists. His naive design unites both form and function, seriousness and play. At the same time, Bojesen possessed a unique ability to bring wood to life in such a way that his works have become international design icons.

Material: Oak (natural and smoked).

Size: 3 1/2" tall.


Kay Bojesen: "Even though an old proverb says ’too much special knowledge makes you stupid’ I, as a craftsman, must say that having gone through an apprenticeship in the field of applied art, gives me certain advantages in the difficult art of design, as compared to those who partly or completely work from theoretical knowledge.” Kay Bojesen was a silversmith, but through his wooden figures he became known as one of Danish applied art's great pioneers. His Grand Prix cutlery received its name when it won first prize in Milan in 1951.
