 MONKEY

Happy Chinese New Year!

 

Designer: Kay Bojesen

Year: 1951

Materials: Teak and limba

 

The birth of Kay's son Otto inspired him to create what is now a collection of 2000 toys. The memories of creating wooden toys with his own father saw the return of his interest in wood and helped him to establish his own philosophy on design; round, soft with a feel good factor. Playful and creative Kay didn't feel he needed to recreate animals exactly as they are, where is the fun in that? Instead the design required simple geometries that sparked children's imaginations. The toy is simple and tactile and absolutely timeless.
