The beautiful rattan lounge chair Chill with complementary footstool was designed in the late summer of 1961. It was the first piece of furniture Nanna Ditzel created after her husband’s death in April 1961. Chill is an almost sculptural installation that effortlessly integrates body with furniture.
The chair was originally put into production in corporation with R.Wengler. R.Wengler was a pioneer within production of rattan furniture in Denmark, and known for exceptional craftsmanship as well as innovative use of materials.
The lounge chair is designed for indoor use, however rumor has it that Nanna Ditzel herself used hers on the terrace of her vacation home.
The chair along with the footstool ties an organic design language with minimalistic features and suggests indulgence and relaxation - whether this is indoors our outdoors.
When the chair was first introduced, the design was considered to be quite unconventional, however today, the chair fits perfectly in a modern house or in stylish outdoor areas.
Nanna Ditzel was one of Denmark’s most innovative female designers. She created an extensive range of textile patterns, which she made table cloths of herself, but none of her table cloths were mass produced.
