Rosendahl - Kay Bojesen Puffin

Rosendahl - Kay Bojesen Puffin

In brief

Rosendahl - Kay Bojesen Puffin.

Full of character and humour, Kay Bojesen's bright-billed wooden bird can change his expression with a simple tilt of his head. Known in Denmark as the 'sea parott', Bojesen's most popular "forgotten" design was originally born in 1954, and has now been lovingly resurrected thanks to Rosendahl.

Even though Kay Bojesen's world-famous wooden figurines aren't exactly toys, the reintroduction of new animals to Bojesen's well-known "animal circus" always brings out the inner child in design lovers. Last year, the colourful Songbirds flew into the family, and this year, we see the arrival of another feathered friend when Rosendahl gives us The Puffin. The bird known in Danish as the "sea parrot" because of its colourful bill may be Kay Bojesen's most popular "forgotten" design, which he brought to life in 1954 in collaboration with scenographer Svend Johansen.

A bright-billed bird from the cold North
You would think that such a colourful, exotic-looking bird would come from some distant tropical climate. But nothing could be further from the truth. The peculiar puffin with its colourful bill, like Kay Bojesen himself, is a product of the cold North. The puffin lives in large colonies in Norway, Iceland and the Faroe Islands, and once in a while, some take a little detour to Denmark. Perhaps even to Kay Bojesen's garden, where the charming bird with the kindly and naive eyes would have received a warm welcome from the designer with the playful imagination and amazing skills for bringing wood to life.
