Dansk was founded in 1954 by Martha and Ted Nierenberg, a mid-century couple. Working with Danish artist/designer Jens Quistgaard they brought Scandinavian style to a stylish new American middle class. Quistgaard’s interest in combining modernism and history and his quest for quality and functionality established the ethos that remains at the heart of Dansk today.
