Nanna Ditzel 1923–2005

Nanna Ditzel, fondly known as the “First Lady of Danish Design,” was born in Copenhagen in 1923. She was trained as a cabinetmaker before enrolling at the School of Arts and Crafts and the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in Copenhagen where she met future husband Jørgen Ditzel. In 1946 the two established a design studio producing an array of jewelry, ceramics, textiles, and furniture including the iconic Hanging Egg chair (1959). In 1956 the pair was awarded the Lunning Prize for their Children’s High Chair. After Jørgen’s death in 1961, Nanna continued the practice on her own eventually moving to London where she established the Interspace International Furniture and Design Centre.
