Dennie Chair and Footstool

Born in Copenhagen in 1923, Nanna Ditzel was a groundbreaking modernist – her work spanned all areas of design. Trained as a cabinetmaker, she opened a studio with her husband Jørgen in 1946, designing furniture, ceramics, jewelry and textiles. Ditzel’s Hallingdal fabric, designed in 1965, has been in continuous production since, becoming one of Kvadrat’s best selling products. Her Dennie Chair (1956), originally designed for Fritz Hansen, was a fixture in the Ditzel household, but was never produced on a large scale. Nanna and Jørgen’s daughter, Dennie (the chair’s namesake), approached Onecollection about bringing this comfortable and cozy – yet minimal – design back into production. Compactly scaled with an elegant splay-leg base, it suits a living room, den, or kid’s room – Dennie remembers being read books as a child from this “body holding” lounge chair. It’s upholstered, of course, in Ditzel’s Hallingdal fabric. The chromed steel sleigh base of the upholstered Footstool echoes the lines of this nearly lost midcentury classic chair. Made in Denmark.
