Kay Bojesen Ernst Songbird

Songbird Ernst is named after Kay Bojesen's father, an extremely versatile man. He was a businessman, editor, cultural personality and a creative soul, who together with his wife Valborg inspired his son Kay to create a flock of beloved wooden figures.

With its smart grey body and meticulously hand-painted details, Kay Bojesen's Ernst Songbird radiates joy, bringing a playful and cheerful touch to any space.

Crafted from solid beech wood, the Ernst Songbird is a symbol of happiness and positivity.

Kay Bojesen (1886 - 1958)  

The Birds series is a collection of songbirds with unique names in a wide range of playful colours. All birds in the Birds series are designed based on Kay Bojesen’s original drawings from the 1950s and produced in FSC®-certified wood, which guarantees that the trees have been planted, cultivated and felled responsibly.  

Kay Bojesen designed with soul, humour and a twinkle in his eye and looked at the world from a child's perspective when creating new stories in wood. There had to be room for the imagination to unfold around the figures, and the simple design language, clear colours and friendly expressions have become his signature.
