Kay Bojesen Rattle

By Kay Bojesen

£35.00

  • Description

    Kay Bojesen designed Rattle, the first classic children's toy, in its original version in 1932. The rattle's dimensions make it easy for small hands to hold, while the ball in the middle of the rattle can move backwards and forwards, spinning around to delight the infant. The rattle is made of unpainted wood, because Kay Bojesen believed that this leaves more room for the imagination. An appealing gift idea for a christening, or as a parental leave present for anyone who appreciates authentic Danish design. The rattle is also a delightful design object for the bookshelf, and without a doubt will accompany the child on his or her journey into adulthood.

    Kay Bojesen

    Kay Bojesen (1886-1958) was an apprentice of Georg Jensen, training as a silversmith from 1906. After a few years in Germany and France, he began working as a silversmith in Copenhagen. Happily, Kay Bojesen was far too curious to restrict himself to the work of refining metals, and in the 1920s he began experimenting with other materials. In the course of his exploration, he discovered wood as a material with very special possibilities for industrial treatment and styling. This discovery led to the classic guardsmen and a whole zoological garden taking shape between his hands. The stainless steel edition of a silver cutlery series from 1938 was awarded the Grand Prix at the Biennale exhibition in Milan in 1951, and came to be known as Grand Prix flatware. In 1952 Kay Bojesen became Silversmith by Appointment to H.M. the King of Denmark. In 1990, Rosendahl obtained the rights to Kay Bojesen's products.
