Presenting the iconic Trinidad Chair in new colours

To commemorate what would have been Ditzel’s 100th anniversary and the 30th anniversary of the Trinidad Chair itself, it is being launched in the new colours Khaki, Nordic blue and a delicate Oak oil version, all with brushed stainless steel legs.

Having sold hundreds of thousands of Trinidad Chairs, the poetic yet sturdy piece of furniture has proven itself as a modern classic known globally for its poetic silhouette. It is expressive yet straightforward in refined dialogue with the surrounding space and is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year.

Inspired by the Caribbean winds and the sunrays playing with the fretwork and the shadows cast by trees on the gingerbread houses, this plywood chair is recognisable yet totally its own.

Khaki Green

A chair is for sitting in, but it also expresses age, eroticism, essence, human feelings, and dreams. While functionality must naturally be preserved, for me, chairs have increasingly become attempts to meet the challenge thrown down by all these other elements.

A poetic design pushing the limits

Dive into the story behind the success of the Trinidad Chair.


Meet the designer

Known as “Grand dame of Danish design”, Nanna Ditzel (1923-2005), with her postmodernist attitude and rebellion against tradition, became a leading figure in the renewal of Danish design in the 1990s, well after her 70th birthday.

Ditzel was not only strikingly ambitious but progressive and forward-looking for her time. Highly occupied with our ways of sitting, she believed comfortable furniture paved the way for new ways of thinking and living, having an incredible ability to transform an artistic thought into highly functional and usable furniture.
