NANNA DITZEL
Denmark
Circa 1951
Rattan, bamboo, linen
29 1/2″ wide x 29″ high x 32 1/4″ deep (seat height 13 3/4″)

A rare original example of one of Nanna Ditzel’s wonderful rattan designs for R. Wengler of Copenhagen. Often called the First Lady of Danish Design, Ditzel cared deeply about quality and comfort, but her designs transcend purely practical considerations in their easy joyfulness. This is an early vintage production, with metal label. The cushions have been recovered in Maharam’s “Pressed Linen.” The new fabric has a soft and textured hand.
