One of my first, and most cherished teak finds was Jens Quistgaard's "Congo" ice bucket from 1955. I have one of the early ones with old stamp and bright orange plastic liner. "Danish-born Jens H. Quistgaad was one of Scandinavia’s leading designers with a vast product range that included furniture, kitchen equipment, tableware and more. He is most closely associated with Dansk International Designs, a company which he co-founded with American entrepreneur Ted Nierenberg. Their partnership lasted for 30 years, Quistgaard being responsible for the majority of designs produced.
He worked in a variety of materials including iron, steel, ceramic and wood. It is wood, and in particular teak, which most often springs to mind when Jens Quistgaard is mentioned." #50s#jensquistgaard#icebucket#congo#viking#design#scandinaviandesign#scandinavia#danish#teak#myhome
