Jens Quistgaard (1919–2008) was an excellent designer. During his career he created designs that during the 1950s and 1960s became synonymous with Scandinavian Modern.

He was born into an artistic home in Copenhagen, Denmark, in 1919. As a boy, he was deeply interested in drawing and ceramics, and as a youth he became an apprentice in his father’s sculptor’s studio. Later, he became an apprentice under Georg Jensen and developed from being a draughtsman and relief-maker to being a sculptural designer.

Jens Quistgaard produced a great number of designs – more than 4000 for Danish Design – but never compromised when it came to sculptural form and natural materials having to go hand in hand.
