By Nanna & Jørgen Ditzel. Designed in 1959.

The Nanna Ditzel Hanging Egg Chair from the ICONS collection is now available for exterior use. The Exterior Collection is made from Alu-Rattan which consists of a strong aluminum frame woven with Art-Fibre. The material is maintenance free and can withstand all weather conditions. This means that original rattan models previously only suitable for interior use now can be used in the garden, on the terrace, or the balcony.

Nanna Ditzel graduated as a furniture designer in 1946 at Design School Copenhagen, in the age of just 23 years. Before that she was educated as a cabinetmaker, a background that gave her a basic understanding of the furniture function prior to its design. Nanna Ditzel's design was experimental and innovative at the same time. Nanna Ditzel managed to become a successful woman in a very male-dominated time of Danish furniture design.


Nanna Ditzel

In 1946, at the astonishing young age of 23, Nanna Ditzel graduated from the prestigious Design School of Copenhagen with a degree in furniture design. Her prior background as a cabinet maker provided her with a basic understanding of the elemental pillars of design, from the fundamental processes of its handcraft to the use of natural materials. Ditzel took it a step further and developed her own identity and style. Her designs were both experimental and innovative, so much so that several of her designs were rediscovered decades later. A timeless example of her forward thinking design aesthetic is the Rana chair, honored with the 2013 Interior Innovation Award in Cologne. Ditzel rebuffed traditional design concepts and managed to successfully build her own, unique style consisting of organic, soft and feminine lines.
