Kay Bojesen Reworked Anniversary Monkey - Small

The Kay Bojesen anniversary Monkey is a unique edition made from leftover wood, making each one special.

The small Jubilee Monkey celebrates Kay Bojesen's iconic creation 70 years ago while advocating responsible craftsmanship and design. Crafted from quality residual wood, it breathes new life into the material, becoming a collector's item that blends heritage and wood types.

Produced in limited numbers, each monkey features a 70-year anniversary stamp on its paw and comes in a wooden box.

The first Monkey saw the light of day in 1951 – and Rosendahl produce it in the same way today as then. Every single figure is created by hand.

Kay Bojesen (1886 - 1958)

Kay Bojesen is known for his significant contribution to Danish functionalism, for creating handcrafted Danish designs with humour and a smile and, naturally, for his popular “animal circus”, where monkeys, elephants, hippos and dogs scamper and romp about the design menagerie to the delight of people of all ages. 

Rosendahl works closely with Kay Bojesen’s family to put a great many of Bojesen’s most popular creations into production.
