Born in Copenhagen in 1923, Nanna Ditzel was a groundbreaking modernist – her work spanned all areas of design. Trained as a cabinetmaker, she opened a studio with her husband Jørgen in 1946, designing furniture, ceramics, jewelry and textiles. Ditzel’s Hallingdal fabric, designed in 1965, has been in continuous production since, becoming one of Kvadrat’s best-selling products. Her Dennie Chair (1956), originally designed for Fritz Hansen, was a fixture in the Ditzel household but was never produced on a large scale. Nanna and Jørgen’s daughter, Dennie (the chair’s namesake), approached House of Finn Juhl about bringing the design back into production. The chromed steel sleigh base of this optional accompanying Footstool (1966) echoes the lines of the nearly lost midcentury classic chair, and it’s also upholstered in Ditzel’s Hallingdal fabric. This original is an authentic, fully licensed product of House of Finn Juhl™. Made in Denmark.
