- The Maker
Even though the new Turtle Doves from Kay Bojesen Denmark are small in size (H: 8.8 cm) compared to The Songbirds they are modelled after, their arrival is big news. The Turtle Doves have never before been put into production, and are only known from old drawings and stories told by Kay Bojesen's family. According to legend, customers in Bojesen's shop in Copenhagen could sometimes be lucky enough to receive a little extra gift when they dropped by, and the designer is said to have given the birds away to those he was close to.
The unique and timeless lovebirds in black are inspired by the black Songbird Raven from Kay Bojesen. Painted black, they are sure to become a beautiful element of any interior in fine, very discreet fashion. The lovebirds are made from beech, then painted with shiny and matte materials for a touch of diversity that creates a special look. In any setting, lovebirds signal romance, diversity and cohesion. Even though they look different, they radiate a caring presence and love.
These delightful lovebirds make the perfect noteworthy wedding present or gift for anyone who appreciates beautiful design of high quality.

Today, design being a well established and defined parameter, you may safely claim that Kay Bojesen, through his many groundbreaking projects and ideas within the world of applied arts, was the first industrial designer in Denmark. Since the relaunch of Grand Prix, now artfully manufactured in Japan and crafted in 18/8 stainless steel, former Head Chef of the world0famous Danish restaurant Noma, Matt Orlando, has chosen the flatware for his newly opened restaurant Amass in Copenhagen. The reason why: It symbolizes not only the essence of Danish craftsmanship, but also quality and functionality. The company is today purveyor to Her Majesty the Queen of Denmark.
However, the flatware has not only gained resonance in Europe but also in the US. Several design experts have emphasized the flatware as the most iconic Danish design from the twentieth century. The world famous American architect Michael Sheridan highlights Kay Bojesen's Grand Prix flatware as one of his favourite Danish designs. Sheridan explains, "The Grand Prix flatware is an industrial product but the curves have their roots in handcraft and a genuine joy of aesthetics. I have used it at home since 2002 and I would argue that it is the best all-around flatware of modern times."
