While Hans J. Wegner and Finn Juhl made the world aware of Danish furniture design in its golden age in the 1950s, Jens Quistgaard opened America's eyes to the concept of "Danish Modern". As a successful and pioneering chief designer of the American brand Dansk Designs, he turned traditional design inside out with sculptural and aesthetic designs, which has since acquired the status of classics of Danish and international design history.
