Rosendahl manufactures the Kay Bojesen wooden animals in tight cooperation with his family out of high quality oak wood and walnut that wins charm with passing years. Bojesen himself has paid homage to the mantra that good design should be human, warm and vivid, during his whole life: ”They should remind of a circus”, is how he used to describe his works, from which his lovingly wooden creatures count to the most popular ones.
