Kay Bojesen Hippo Oak
Kay Bojesen Oak Hippo by Rosendahl
Originally created in 1955, Kay Bojesen's Hippo is made of white oak and was designed for a special purpose, to keep hold of the designer's drawing pencil.
Kay Bojesen's intention was never to create exact replicas of wildlife, but rather to produce animals whose designs reflected a child's view of animals. His creations, designed between 1930s-50s, were to be based on simple, beautiful shapes, tactile materials and should inspire imaginative play.Thus his charming menajerie of solid, tactile designs took shape. Fulfilling Bojesen's dream, his playful collection of animals and figurines, now produced by the respected Danish Rosendahl Group, have become treasured classics throughout the world.
