The first authoritative monograph on the life and work of the celebrated Danish-American designer Jens Quistgaard.
Jens Quistgaard (1919-2008), considered one of the founders of Scandinavian Modern style, spent 30 years as chief designer at the American company Dansk Designs, resulting in more than 4,000 products. His design philosophy – that utilitarian, everyday items should function harmoniously – influenced his approach to everything from spoons and pans to crockery and pepper mills, and is as relevant today as it was half a century ago. This book delves deep into Quistgaard’s life and work to reveal his critical contribution to design history.
