Kay Bojesen

Denmark (1886-1958)


Kay Bojesen finished his training as a silversmith in 1910 and in 1913 he established his own workshop. He was one of the originators in the establishment of The Permanent Exhibition of Danish Arts and Crafts and Industrial Design in 1931.


Kay Bojesen worked both as a silversmith and a designer. He was originally influenced by the Danish arts and crafts style, Skønvirke, but graduallydeveloped a moderate functionalism. This was expressed in his works in both silver and stainless steel, as well as the wooden toys, among them the famous ape from 1951.


Bojesen has, however, also created a few products in cane such as the doll’s bed.
