Tim the Terrier

Kay Bojesen loved to create imaginative versions of real animals. This version of man's best friend is produced in smoked oak. His name is Tim and he is an alert little terrier designed in 1935. With his movable head tilted attentively to one side, and his tail in the air, he will quickly become a dear friend of the family. A great gift idea for all occasions that deserve special recognition. Tim will be there through all of life's phases, from childhood through to adulthood.

Kay Bojesen

Kay Bojesen is famous for his wooden figures but it is widely unknown that Kay Bojesen was in fact a silversmith. He started his career as a silversmith with Georg Jensen and has designed both jewellery, cutlery and silverware. Interest in wood was sparked after the birth of his son Otto. This inspired his fascination with children's play and most importantly wooden toys.
Kay Bojesen began experimenting with wooden materials and soon he had created a series of wooden animals that would inspire children through play. For Kay Bojesen, it was important that the animals were not very realistic in order to trigger children's imagination. For this reason, his motto was "the lines should laugh".
Kay Bojesen is considered one of Denmark's foremost designers and when he died at the age of 72, he left a big legacy behind. A legacy of design icons like the classic wood pan, zebra, puffin and the pair of doves ‘Lovebirds’.
