The First Lady of Danish Design

“I want to have ideas about design that create an image of life as I see it,” said ‘The First Lady of Danish Design’, Nanna Ditzel (1923-2005).

On International Women’s Day, who better to talk about from the world of Danish Modern design than Nanna Ditzel? And who better to talk about her than her own daughter? Watch Dennie Ditzel talk about her mother, the experimental and innovative designer Nanna Ditzel who became a leading figure in the renewal of Danish design.

The Nanna Ditzel Design Interview Youtube video from the Louisiana Channel is in Danish with English subtitles. We hope you enjoy it. And happy International Women’s Day to all our readers!

By the way, our current trip to Denmark included a visit to our friends at Brdr. Petersen, makers of Nanna Ditzel’s classic Oda chair, also known as the Nursing Chair. Its tantalising form is distinctly feminine and the comfort and support extraordinary. Hardly surprising we’ve got one on the way to the showroom arriving later in 2020. Available to custom order in Australia through Danish Red.
