Welcome to a brand new monkey in Kay Bojesen's design universe: the elegant and graphic mini monkey in dark stained oak. The unique craftsmanship finish that characterizes Kay Bojesen's products is evident in the new mini monkey, where the tree plays the main role and is treated with tenderness and respect. It requires great care and experience when the monkey's small parts are to be grazed, and there are many hours of craftsmanship in each little monkey. The stained surface gives the wood a deep black surface with glow, warmth and life, and the impressive craftsmanship details together with the dark color create an exclusive expression. The new, stylish monkey is the perfect gift for the design lover. Or to him or her who can not get enough of Kay Bojesen's monkeys at all. Wherever the monkey moves in, it will create smiles and style with its whimsical appearance and elegant appearance.

Kay Bojesen

Monkey

The Kay Bojesen monkey is a classic and a lovable friend who will be by our side through each stage of our lives – from the kids’ room to becoming a beloved design icon in the home. The first Monkey was born in 1951 and is still produced in the same way today as it was then. Each figure has been created by hand and crafted at a Danish wood-turning mill.

The monkey is a high-quality piece of craftsmanship that accompanies us from child to adult at every stage of our lives, and is also an incredibly popular gift for those you love. And with this cute figure, you don't just get classic Danish design from 1951. You also get a unique Monkey from Kay Bojesen. No two of them are alike. And when the popular figure is allowed to hang out – as it does in many homes – the different nuances in the wood change and give the already unique Kay Bojesen Monkey even more personality. Over time, the affects of light and air will change any colour nuances in the wood to a more uniform, warm golden brown tone.

The monkey is available in small, medium and large versions. Common to them all is that they are original wood creations. Kay Bojesen always gave his wooden figures a special soul. Each one also got its own story, and with their smiling lines, unique shapes and vibrant wood they have survived many generations. According to Kay Bojesen, wood only comes to life when it has a story.

The monkey is also available in a Reworked anniversary edition, which is a special edition of the iconic Monkey made form residual wood. The anniversary monkey is both a celebration and a standpoint. In 2021 in marked the 70th anniversary of Kay Bojesen cutting the first smiling lines into the classic Monkey. And a standpoint because the Anniversary Monkey was born out of a principle of responsibility in craftsmanship and design.

As the new family member is made from residual wood, there may be variations in wood types, such as teak, walnut, oak, ash, maple, limba and mahogany. We cannot guarantee which woods each of the Anniversary Monkeys are produced from. This depends on the availability of residual wood. But we can guarantee that each Anniversary Monkey will be even more unique than the original classic if possible.

The process of processing the Anniversary Monkey is considerably more demanding than the well-known Monkey in teak and limba, which is turned out of one piece of wood and, like its original siblings in the monkey family, is produced in a high quality and with great craftsmanship. Many pieces of wood need to be adapted and put together, and this places high demands on both the craftsmanship and the quality of the wood.

The reworked Monkey is based on the principle of upcycling, and the ambition is to use the resources that would otherwise have been wasted. In this way, the Reworked Monkey gives new life to wood and can be displayed - or hung - as a responsible ambassador for a new and modern interpretation of the original wooden stories of which Kay Bojesen was a true master. The result is a Monkey that, through craftsmanship and design, unites heritage, wood types and shades – a true collector’s item with its own unique expression and story. The special edition has a 70th anniversary stamp on the paw and comes in a limited edition in a special wooden anniversary box.

The famous Kay Bojesen Monkey was actually created when Kay Bojesen wanted to make a hook for his children, but instead he ended up making a world-famous Danish design icon. Since then, the monkey has come in several different sizes and versions, and the many much-loved members of the monkey herd continue to find their way onto countless wish lists and gift tables around the world.
