Considered one of the founders of the modern Scandinavian style, Jens Quistgaard (1919-2008) spent 30 years as chief designer of the American company Dansk Designs, resulting in over 4,000 products. His design philosophy, that utilitarian objects in everyday life should function harmoniously, influenced his approach to everything from spoons and pans to tableware and pepper mills, and remains as relevant today as it was half a century ago.

Quistgaard's work is represented in major museums in Europe and the United States, including the Design Museum Denmark, MoMA in New York, and the British Museum in London, and many of his designs are still being produced today.

This book is the first monograph devoted to the life and work of the Danish-American designer. Through previously unpublished sketches, archival photographs, case studies, ephemera, and an illustrated inventory of his designs, it reveals Quistgaard's essential contribution to the history of design.
