Nanna Ditzel Design
Meeting Nanna Ditzel leads to an irresistible urge to put her furniture in your home. Partly because of her unparalleled innovative talent, but also in the hope that her personality will have a contagious effect on your rooms.
Ditzel, who trained as a cabinet maker, is known for her professionalism and sure sense of the needs furniture is expected to meet. At the same time, however, she is renowned for her bold experimental style that has won her numerous furniture awards.
At an age when most other people have long since retired, the grand old lady of Danish design
continues to attract worldwide attention and she welcomes the inspiration that comes from new materials and production methods.
Ditzel is reluctant to discuss her current projects,
but you can be sure that the experimental designer has something innovative and spectacular in the pipeline.
‘Three steps forward and two back still means I’ve taken a step in the right direction!’ she says.
