Kay Bojesen: Shiny & Matt Black Lovebirds
Rosendahl, Denmark. 

Kay Bojesen's Black Raven Lovebirds (two-piece set). Rosendahl's unique and timeless lovebirds in black are inspired by the black Songbird Raven from Kay Bojesen. Painted black, they are sure to become a beautiful element of any interior in fine, very discreet fashion. The lovebirds are made from beech, then painted with shiny and matt materials for a touch of diversity that creates a special look. Together with Bojesen’s other wooden figures, the Black 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.

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: FSC-certified Painted beech.

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.
