In 2023, Kay Bojesen’s iconic and beloved Elephant celebrates its 70th anniversary. We are celebrating the occasion with a Reworked Elephant – a special edition created from a wonderful mix of different wood types, such as teak, walnut, oak, ash and maple – all from surplus and residual wood. With a focus on upcycling and minimising resource waste, the Reworked Elephant has a new, modern and sustainable dimension, so that it not only acknowledges the past but also the future. With respect for the environment, the Reworked Elephant is made from residual wood, which means each Elephant will therefore look different depending on which types of wood are left over on the day they are produced. In other words, we cannot guarantee which types of wood each of the Reworked Elephants are made of. But we can guarantee that every single Elephant is even more unique than the original classic, if that's possible. The large Reworked Elephant measures 21 cm in height, has a 70th anniversary stamp under one foot and comes in a special, limited edition wooden anniversary box. Only 600 pieces are produced and everyone is numbered. We cannot inform you which number your elephant has.

Kay Bojesen

Wooden animals

The Kay Bojesen Wooden Animals range consists of a beautiful and imaginative bunch of animals from tree monkeys to songbirds – all beloved design classics that quickly become part of the family and fit into any home. Kay Bojesen worked based on the philosophy that wood only comes to life when it gets a story – a philosophy that was consistent with all his figures. The combination of this concept and Kay Bojesen’s unique talent turned his magical world of Wooden Figures and Animals into beloved classics and design icons that will last for decades to come.

Kay Bojesen is one of the big Danish designers. He was able to turn wood into original stories like no other. He had a knack for bringing the wood to life. Or as he put it: “Making the line smile”. And the lines certainly smile in each of the Wooden Animals – which have all become iconic.

Kay Bojesen story

When the Kay Bojesen brand was founded back in 1932, it marked the start of a story about a craftsman with a great sense of humour and plenty of curiosity. Kay Bojesen created his animals and figures based on the philosophy that good design should be accessible to everyone, and over time Kay Bojesen has become synonymous with original Danish design.
