NANNA DITZEL
(1923–2005)

(1923-2005)

Nanna Ditzel was probably the most internationally acclaimed designer in Denmark. Her style was characterised by simplicity and purity in shaping, and a more bold but well-matched choice of colours. She often combined colours which seemingly did not go together, but which she manged to balance nonetheless. Ditzel also had a pronounced sense of material, whether she was working with wood, fabrics, or silver.

An important foundation for Ditzels particular style was her long cooperation with her husband Jørgen Ditzel. Together, they developed an experimental working structure which consisted of equal measures of functional and aesthetic deliberations. All through her career, Nanna Ditzel preserved the dialogue with the Danish tradition for creating sensible, functional designs, but managed simultaneously to add this often rigid tradition a renewed sense of space and form.
