Two of the most iconic landmarks in Danish design history have teamed up to celebrate the smiling lines and happy stripes they have each contributed to Danish design. The famous Kay Bojesen Monkey was created back in 1951, when Kay Bojesen wanted to make a children’s level hanger to support his kids in reaching their clothes. Instead, he ended up making a world-famous Danish design icon. Now the iconic Monkey itself has put on some clothes, and what matches a Danish design icon better than another Danish design icon? Kay Bojesen Monkey x Nørgaard paa Strøget in this large size is made of FSC® certified teak and limba, measuring 47 cm in height. You can get the Monkey with the nice painted Nørgaard paa Strøget #101 T-shirt in either this black with white stripes or white with black stripes. Both colour variants have the well-known red neckline, which you only find on #101 T-shirts in the exclusive Nørgaard paa Strøget version in the store on Amagertorv in Copenhagen. Kay Bojesen is synonymous with original Danish sculpting and design. The collaboration with Mads Nørgaard ties together the love for durable and long-lasting products, while adding exactly the playfulness and curiosity that Kay Bojesen himself loved to add to his designs to drive forward the imagination and create original stories made of wood. The iconic Monkey in new clothes is a fun and straightforward celebration of both design icons, where with a twinkle in the eye we collectively pay tribute to the humour and the smiling lines with colours and stripes that runs like a red thread back and forth through Danish design history.
Variations may occur in the stripes, but that is only because each monkey has its own unique personality. This is because the stripes are carefully applied to each Monkey x Nørgaard på Strøget through a handheld process.
