About the designer:

Kay Bojesen graduated as a silversmith in 1910 after completing his studies with silversmith Georg Jensen. He was one of the first Danish craftsmen to embrace functionalism. He was one of the pioneers who organized the Den Permanente association - an artists' cooperative that included a shop and exhibition space that over the decades came to represent the best in Danish and Scandinavian design. 1919 was the beginning of a new era for Kay Bojesen. He married and his son Otto was born. This sparked Kay Bojesen's imagination and fascination with children, toys and wood and brought back memories of his own childhood when his father (the publisher Ernst Bojesen - the publisher of the Danish satirical annual Blæksprutten (The Octopus)) carved wooden figures for him and him encouraged his children to be creative, imaginative and playful.
