Nanna & Jorgen Ditzel
Nanna Ditzel (1923-2005) was an internationally recognized Danish designer. Together with her husband Jørgen Ditzel (1921-1961), their first furniture designs were exhibited while still students at the Arts and Crafts School in Copenhagen.
They quickly established their own design studio and started to work with wicker in the renowned workshop founded by the famous wicker worker Robert W. in 1950. Ditzel’s experimental approach to materials resulted in multiple innovative furniture made of rattan. This cooperation was the beginning of a renewed status for wicker furniture in interior design.
