“A leading member of the generation of designers who created the postwar Danish modern movement, Nanna Ditzel, has died in Copenhagen at the age of 81. Remarkable, above all else, for being a woman in the male-dominated world of industrial design, from the mid-1940s she created – with her husband Jorgen, until his death in 1961, and subsequently on her own – numerous iconic design objects.

The Ditzels helped to make Denmark renowned for its production of innovative accessories – in furniture, interiors, ceramics, textiles and jewellery, in particular. No single piece expressed this spirit more than their 1959 wicker egg chair, which, suspended by a chain from the ceiling, was frequently featured in fashion and interior magazines. Its gravity- resistant form suggested a liberated lifestyle, free from earth-bound anxieties, and it was embraced by an idealistic generation of stylish young people in the 1960s.

From the early 20th century, Danish modernism had been committed to the humanistic principles underpinning craft materials and manufacture and, after the second world war, to equipping small living spaces with flexible furnishings. In their work, the Ditzels embraced that same idealism and moved it on into a new era.

Nanna Ditzel had an impeccable Danish modern pedigree. Born in Copenhagen, she began her working life as an apprentice cabinet-maker and trained as a furniture maker under the leading craftsman of the inter-war years, Kaare Klint, at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts, Copenhagen, and subsequently at the School of Arts and Crafts. Her career blossomed while she was still a student and she began exhibiting at the influential annual Cabinetmakers’ Guild exhibitions in the Danish capital.

She met her husband, an upholstery specialist, in 1943, and they set up a design studio together in 1946, the year of Nanna’s graduation. The late 1940s and 1950s saw the couple work together on furniture pieces and interior environments. The strikingly novel, split-level floor seating and cushions they created quickly became their trademark. In 1952, they designed a series of children’s furniture items (they had three daughters themselves), a theme that was to re-emerge in Nanna’s career with the creation of Toadstool, a furniture piece which could be used both as a stool and a table.

Although modern in style – and inspired by the possibilities offered by new materials and production techniques – the Ditzel designs were, above all, sensitive to the requirements of comfort and liveability. The award of silver medals at the influential Milan triennales of 1951, 1954 and 1957 was followed by a gold medal at the 1960 event.

In 1956, they began a fruitful collaboration with the Danish jewellery company, Georg Jensen. The organic shapes of the innovative pieces they created were inspired by the natural world – Nanna likened one design to “the ripples of waves”. After Jorgen’s death, Nanna added to her clients the Danish textile companies Kvadrat and Unika-Voev, for whom she created a showroom.

In 1968, her life changed dramatically when she married a German businessman, Kurt Heide, and moved to Hampstead, north London, where she opened the furniture studio and showroom Interspace, which became an important forum for discussions about modern furniture design. Her 18 years in London were recognised when she was made an honourable royal designer for industry in 1996.

After the death of her second husband, Nanna went back to Copenhagen in 1986. There, she continued, until a few months before her death, to design innovative furniture pieces which combined her apprenticeship within early postwar Danish modernism and a level of sophistication which came from having worked in the international arena for several decades.

Her op-art patterned Bench for Two, of 1989, for instance brought together a sense of economy learned from equipping the minimal spaces of the 1950s with pop imagery absorbed from the 1960s. The sleek sofas and tables she created in the early 2000s demonstrated her awareness of the elegant designs that had emerged from Italy in the 1970s and 80s but still had a certain Danishness about them.

In 1993, Nanna had a one-woman exhibition in Milan, while 1996 and 1997 saw her designs exhibited in Manchester, Glasgow, Iceland and London. In 1998, she was awarded the lifelong artist’s grant by the Danish ministry of culture and a book of her work, Motion And Beauty, was published. She is survived by her three daughters.

Georg Arthur Jensen
(1866 – 1935 Kopenhagen) eröffnete nach absolviertem Bildhauerei-Studium und anschließender Mitarbeit im Atelier des dänischen Hofjuweliers Michelsen 1904 sein eigenes Atelier in Kopenhagen. Hier entsehen vor allem Schmuckstücke, aber auch vereinzelt Korpusware, wie eine kleine Teekanne, die zum Prototyp der Besteck- (1919 entworfen) und Korpus-Serie MAGNOLIA # 2 / BLOSSOM # 84 wurde. Georg Jensens erster Besteckentwurf entstand 1906 für das Muster ANTIK / CONTINENTAL. Bereits 1924 wurde eine Zweigstelle der höchst erfolgreichen Georg Jensen Silberschmiede / silversmithy auf der 5th Avenue in New York eröffnet. Bis heute werden ausschließlich qualitativ hochwertige Silberarbeiten, meist handgeschmiedet, namenhafter Designer vertrieben, wie Sigvard Bernadotte, Muster BERNADOTTE, Harald Nielsen, Muster PYRAMIDE, Johan Rohde, Muster KÖNIG, Otto Gundlach Pedersen, Muster KAKTUS, Henning Koppel, Nanna Ditzel, Vivianne TORUN Buelow-Huebe, etc.
Korpusware: ANTIK, BERNADOTTE, CARAVEL, CYPRESS, DOBBELRIFLET, KAKTUS, KÖNIG, KÖNIGIN, KUGEL, MAGNOLIA, PYRAMIDE, RELIEF
