Dennie chair – Press Release
Design: Nanna & Jørgen Ditzel, 1956
Onecollection is now re-lauching a super comfortable easy chair complemented by a foot stool and a table. The chair has been designed by Nanna and Jørgen Ditzel in 1956 for the company Fritz Hansen, but it has never before been produced in a large scale.
Nanna Ditzel, who was one of the really big modern furniture designers in Denmark, passed away in 2006. Her daughter Dennie, who is taking care of her parent’s design heritage, has asked Onecollection to re-launch the chair, which has always had it’s place in her mother’s house.
To Dennie it is her childhood’s cosy chair, where you sat safely and had stories read aloud. The chair, which we have named Dennie, is delivered with fabric of own choice, but is perfect with Hallingdal 65 in sharp colours.
In many ways this chair leans against the human liberation, which became the starting point of Finn Juhl’s access to design. The chair it’s self is a “body holder” and allows the body to move, and this is not so strange as Nanna Ditzel herself was much inspired by the artistic liberation of Finn Juhl.
