Visually, the Ditzel Lounge Chair has an openness that’s instantly welcoming and a cosy feeling once seated. Boasting voluptuous curves and ample seating, think of it as a private place of solace.

Nanna Ditzel was truly an extraordinary woman. Incredibly talented, with a magnetic personality and a relentless drive. When Thomas Graversen took over after his father in the late 1980’s, Ditzel joined him as Head of Design. Their close collaboration and openness to experimentation led to countless design awards and pieces celebrated all around the world to this day. Including what is arguably Ditzel’s most famous piece, the Trinidad Chair. Boasting a career that began as part of the mid-century Danish Modern movement, she was a forwardthinking visionary whose work spanned over 50 years.

Known for her rebellious spirit and never-say-never attitude, Ditzel was unafraid to push the boundaries of what was considered possible. To challenge the status quo with sculptural, vibrant designs that drew inspiration from nature.

Partnering with her husband Jørgen on the Ditzel Lounge Chair, they rejected conventional thinking and the assumption that a chair must be upright and rigid. Instead, by creating unconventional furniture that took into account the various dimensions in a room, they believed that sitting in new ways would give people the freedom to think and live in new ways.

One of their most accomplished designs was the Ditzel Lounge Chair, designed in 1953. With the Ditzel Lounge Chair, each line and curve has been carefully considered so as to be beautiful from all angles. Providing a perfect fit to the human form and exceptional comfort, given the generous width, back support, armrests and upholstery. It also lends itself to customised versions and countless colours. Despite its broad, self-contained dimensions, the chair is rather light without taking up much space.

A welcome escape into spaciousness, the Ditzel Lounge Chair is a modern take on the traditional easy chair, offering a stylish seating solution for settings in search of intimacy. From private residences to more public venues, such as hotel lobbies and executive suites, upscale lounges, reception areas.
