Groundbreaking All-Around Modernist
Nanna Ditzel (1923-2005) was the most versatile and creative female designer that Denmark produced in the 20th century. She designed furniture, jewelry, tableware and textiles. She shaped her pieces using an equally astonishing variety of materials, from wood and wicker, to silver, ceramics and fiberglass. In 1959 Ditzel produced the “Hanging Chair.” The piece, suspended from the ceiling by a chain, became a favorite for fashion shoots and an icon of the 1960s.
