Bojesens's sculptural Zebra; a figure of a striped wooden Zebra — evidently one of Kay Bojesen's most prized objects of mid-century Danish wood craft — has withstood the test of time.
Based on the original artefact that used to live in Bojesen's house, Rosendahl has manufactured the Kay Bojesen Zebra according to
the exact specifications of the original.
Kay Bojesen, one of the most enthusiastic leaders of 20th-century Danish design, created this modern Zebra as part of his
animals series which include the monkey, elephant and bear. Discover the retro, vintage and mid-century wooden toy collection

"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.
