Danish designers Nanna and Jørgen Ditzel began their careers very young. In the early 1950s they designed furniture using innovative materials, without ignoring classic materials. In 1954 they designed a jewellery line, which won a gold and a silver medal at the Milan Triennale, and was key to their winning the Lunning Prize in 1956. After a period in London, Nanna Ditzel opened a studio in Copenhagen. She designed a wide range of furniture, textiles and jewellery up until her death in 2005. These include the ‘Trinidad’ chair, for Fredericia Furniture, and ‘Hallingdal’, a fabric created for the Halling-Koch Design Centre, in collaboration with Kvadrat. Nanna Ditzel extended the ‘Hallingdal’ design with over a hundred colour combinations, which became part of outstandinginterior designs all over the world.
