Jens Quistgaard: The Designer Behind Dansk
Quistgaard designed an astonishing number of fabulous tableware products for the American company Dansk Designs from the 1950s through the 1970s, helping to convert Americans to the modernist aesthetic. Here is a sampling of some of those creations, some portraits of the designer himself and a clip from a new film on Quistgaard by Stig Guldberg. For more information about the film, The Designer Jens Quistgaard: A Saucepan for My Wife, and where to purchase it, visit jensquistgaard.com. For an in-depth look at Quistgaard by Guldberg, see Modernism Vol. 14, No. 1, Spring 2011.
