Kay Bojesen designed his two fresh-faced skiers at the end of the 1940's.
The happy boy skier with his rosey red cheeks and bobble hat is named Boje, Kay Bojesen's pet-name for his son, Otto. The boy skier’s female companion is named after Otto’s wife Ruth, whose pet-name was Datti.
“Boje" and “Datti” are immensely human with their intense eyes, energetic body language and smart skis, standing at the ready anywhere in the home – on the windowsill, desk or bookshelf.
These two dauntless figures were only produced in small series, so the original wooden ones are very rare.

Kay Bojesen (1886 - 1958)
Kay Bojesen is known for his significant contribution to Danish functionalism, for creating handcrafted Danish design 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.
