Hans Bølling 'Rufus' Dog for Architectmade
A handcrafted Danish Icon – turning heads since 1953.
Designed with Hans Bølling’s characteristic humor, Rufus can be arranged so that he imitates everything a normal dog can do. From sitting to begging to playing or crawling, their personalities shine through, making them a joyful companion for everyday (without having to take them out for a walk!).
65 years after the first Oscar was put into production, the beloved figure is now being relaunched as Rufus with the same technical detailing and clean lines.
Hans Bølling’s work is known for its play, humor and wit. After training as an advertising designer, Bølling’s interest in architecture drew him back to school for a second degree. Early in his new career he began to craft small figures as gifts for family and friends. The precision and personality in his objects paved the way for success as he quickly began to sell the wooden figures to stores.
Material: Beautifully handcrafted from beech and leather
