A zoo of amazing wooden figures and collectibles from one of Denmark’s most known designers. “The monkey.” It is a staple on Danish wish lists. The sweet monkey from Kay Bojesen with hands like hooks and a sweet smile is one of Denmark’s biggest design icons. And for a good reason. It was brought to life by one of the most playful adults, Kay Bojesen, that has since expanded his collection of wooden figures with both people and animal figures. The monkey is a Danish design treasure that has sold over 300.000 units at the time of writing.
