KAY BOJESEN PANDA SMALL.
Design by Kay Bojesen.
Kay Bojesen has long been known for the playful / iconic wooden figures - and now a new member joins the group: the panda.
But the black and white bear carries an important message. The panda was launched in collaboration with the WWF World Nature Fund and symbolizes the relationship between sustainability, nature and modern design.
Kay Bojesen Panda is made to support the endangered animals in the world. That is why part of the sale also goes to WWF's work on nature protection projects.
"I hope it will be in many homes and remind you that there is something worth fighting for," said Bo Øksnebjerg, General Secretary of the WWF World Natural Fund when the new family member was presented.
The dimensions are: H15 / B9.5 / D6.5 cm.
Black and white lacquered birch wood.
Height 15 cm.
Width: 9,5 cm.

About the designer:
Kay Bojesen (1886-1958) was an apprentice of Georg Jensen, training as a silversmith from 1906. After a few years in Germany and France, he began working as a silversmith in Copenhagen. Happily, Kay Bojesen was far too curious to restrict himself to the work of refining metals, and in the 1920s he began experimenting with other materials. In the course of his exploration, he discovered wood as a material with very special possibilities for industrial treatment and styling.
