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 this comfortable and cozy – yet minimal – design back into production. Compactly scaled with an elegant splay-leg base in chromed steel, it suits a living room, den or kid’s room – Dennie remembers being read books as a child from this “body holding” lounge chair. This nearly lost midcentury classic chair is upholstered, of course, in Ditzel’s Hallingdal fabric. This original is an authentic, fully licensed product of House of Finn Juhl™. Made in Denmark.
