Kay Bojesen was known for his love of wooden toys. He was able to bring wood to life, with soul and humour.
With its friendly expression and soft silhouette, the Wooden Monkey captures Kay Bojesen’s playful trademark perfectly, beautifully executed by Brdr. Krüger. A highly complex product consisting of 31 different parts made of two kinds of hardwood, the Wooden Monkey requires a unique sense of detail and a gifted ability to create a beautiful, charismatic object from a log of wood. The Wooden Monkey is made of teak and limba hardwoods that age beautifully to ensure long-lasting value. With rotating legs and arms, the hands and feet are shaped like hooks to allow the monkey to hang and swing like its real-life counterpart.
The Wooden Monkey has proudly been crafted for Rosendahl Design Group at Brdr. Krüger’s own woodshop in Denmark since 1992.
