Nanna + Jørgen Ditzel

Nanna Ditzel, egg hanging chair

A selection of simple and functional vintage furniture by Danish design couple Nanna and Jørgen Ditzel. The two designers established a joint office in Copenhagen, in 1946 and received through the years many prizes and recognitions for their work in furniture, jewellery, kitchenware, glasses and fabrics.  Nanna Ditzel was also a cabinetmaker, a background that gave her the fundamental understanding of furniture making prior to its design.

First image is the iconic Egg, a rattan hanging chair designed in 1957 by Nanna and Jørgen Ditzel, still in production today by Bonacina, Italy.
