Born in 1926 in Copenhagen, Jensen is a product designer with the greatest number of honours and awards in the world. His works are timeless and many of them are on permanent display in museums across the globe. He has created more than 500 industrial products for Danish and foreign companies. His best known works include product design for Bang & Olufsen A/S, where he functioned as advisor on matters of design and strategy from 1985-1989. Altogether he has designed more than one hundred pieces for the hi-fi and video company, among them music systems, amplifiers, record players, tape recorders, CD-players, remote controls and loudspeakers. He has shown us that the music systems in our homes, the telephones in our offices, the watches we wear, the kitchen equipment we use, along with numerous other products, can contain a quiet beauty. A great book for designers.
