Scandinavian Modern Teak ‘Congo’ Ice Bucket by Jens Quistgaard

$444.18

About

A fine example of a Scandinavian Modern teak ice bucket designed by Jens Quistgaard, a master of the sculptural paired back and simplistic form. This teak ice bucket has had its wood sympathetically and selectively chosen in order to create an outstanding example. We have had the piece professionally restored and waxed. The ice bucket comes with an early stamp to the base. Jens Harald Quistgaard (April 23, 1919 – January 4, 2008) was a Danish sculptor and designer, known principally for his work for the American company Dansk Designs, where he was chief designer from 1954 and for the following three decades. Though a sculptor and grounded in traditional handicrafts, he quickly established a career as an industrial designer. From the mid-1950s his tableware and kitchenware designs became synonymous with Scandinavian modern and found their way into millions of homes in the USA, Europe and Japan. With his international orientation and success he was groundbreaking, and he had great significance for the place which Danish design acquired in the minds of many Americans.[1] In 1958 he received the Neiman Marcus Award and during the following years he was represented at major museums in Europe and the USA. Jens Quistgaard pieces are held in the following museums: Copenhagen Museet på Koldinghus, Kolding, Denmark Industrimuseet Frederiks Værk, Frederiksværk, Denmark The Victoria and Albert Museum, London National Museum, Stockholm; MoMA, The Museum of Modern Art, New York City The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York City The Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum, New York City The Brooklyn Museum, Brooklyn, New York The Philadelphia Museum of Art Indianapolis Museum of Art The Montreal Museum of Fine Arts Das Kunstgewerbemuseum, Berlin GRASSI Museum of Applied Arts, Leipzig Städtisches Museum, Braunschweig The Louvre, Paris.
