Onecollection has relaunched the easy chair, Dennie, which was designed by Nanna and Jørgen Ditzel in 1956 for Fritz Hansen.
The Dennie Chair is nicely complemented by a footstool and a small table.
Nanna Ditzel, who was one of the most influential modern furniture designers in Denmark, passed away in 2005. Her daughter Dennie, who oversees her parents’ design heritage, asked Onecollection to relaunch the chair which has always held a special place in her mother’s house.
To Dennie, it is her cozy childhood chair, where she sat safely and had stories read out loud to her. The chair, symbolically named Dennie, is available with upholstery in fabric or leather and a frame in chrome or black painted steel.
The Dennie Chair combines style with casual comfort. Whether placed in the living room or the office, the curved shape and soft seat create a welcoming vibe that invoke relaxed conversations.
Furthermore, an upholstered footstool and a small side table with a white laminate tabletop are part of the Dennie series.
Nanna Ditzel (1923-2005) was probably the most internationally acclaimed female designer in Denmark. Her style was characterised by simplicity and purity and a more bold but well-matched choice of colours. She often combined colours which seemingly did not go together, but which she manged to balance nonetheless.
Together with her husband Jørgen Ditzel she designed jewelry for Georg Jensen but also furniture and textiles which earned silver medals at the Triennale in Milan 1951, 1954 and 1957 and the gold medal in 1960. In 1956 they were awarded the Lunning Prize.
Nanna Ditzel had a pronounced sense of material, and even after Jørgen Ditzel’s death in 1961, she continued to design, and in 1968 she moved to London where she established the Interspace International Furniture and Design Centre, an institution which developed a high reputation as a centre for experimental design. Nanna Ditzel returned to denmark in 1986 and opened a combined design studio and furniture workshop in Copenhagen.
