Jens Quistgaard Dansk Designs

Jens Harald Quistgaard (23 April 1919 – 4 January 2008) was a Danish sculptor and designer, known principally for his work for the American company Dansk Designs, where he was chief designer from 1954 and for the following three decades. He trained in traditional handicrafts and then turned to industrial design. From the mid-1950s his table and kitchenware designs became synonymous with Scandinavian modern and achieved huge success in the USA, Europe and Japan. His international orientation and success was groundbreaking and contributed significantly to the importance that Danish design achieved in the USA.
