The series includes knifes, forks, spoons, serving cutlery and cutlery for children – all made in polished, stainless steel.
Kay Bojesen designed the classic ”Grand Prix” cutlery in 1938, focusing on minimalist design and functionality. He was of the opinion that cutlery should not be affected by fashion and trends, but stand as timeless and aesthetic tools. In 1951, Kay Bojesen’s cutlery won the first prize at the World Exhibition in Milan and was thereafter named “Grand Prix”.
Kay Bojesen (1886-1958), is one of Denmark's foremost and most recognized designers. He graduated as a silversmith in 1910, after working a while as an apprentice at Georg Jensen. In the 1930s, he created the well-known cutlery series "Grand Prix". He also began to develop a passion for wood as a designing material. Over time, he created a variety of wooden figures in the shape of small animals, including the world famous, smiling wooden monkey from 1951. Both the cutlery and the wooden figures are designed with the idea that objects should feel comfortable when you hold them in your hands.
