Ten Johannes Andersen Armchairs with Nanna Ditzel Hallingdal Green Fabric

About

An Impressive set of Johannes Andersen armchairs for Uldum Modelfabrik with green fabric by Nanna Ditzel Hallingdal. The full set of ten armchairs are crafted in teak. It is believed that Andersen initially apprenticed as a cabinetmaker. He went on to work for many years in a number of workshops before opening his own architectural and furniture workshop in the 1930s. His career paralleled the Midcentury’s growing appreciation for Danish furniture designs, and he attracted international attention, working steadily for his own firm, as well as Swedish, Danish and Norwegian companies such as Uldum Møbelfabrik, Trensum, CFC Silkeborg, and Bramin until he closed his shop in his 1980s. Born in Copenhagen in 1923, Nanna Ditzel Hallingdal had a remarkable, multifaceted career at a time when design was widely the sole domain of men.

About Nanna Ditzel (Designer)

Nanna Ditzel was the most versatile and creative female designer that Denmark produced in the 20th century. Ditzel brought her talents to bear on a staggering array of forms — she designed furniture, jewelry, tableware and textiles; and she shaped her pieces using an equally astonishing variety of materials, from wood and wicker to silver, ceramics and fiberglass.

     Born in Copenhagen, she trained as a cabinetmaker at the Royal Academy's furniture school — overseen by the great craftsman of the day, Kaare Klint — and graduated in 1943. Ditzel’s early work adhered to the classic Danish modernist tenets of simplicity, comfort and quality, and her armchairs, with their softly curved backrests are much in the spirit of Hans Wegner. Ditzel’s signature piece of that time is her “Ring chair.” Designed along with her husband, Jørgen Ditzel, a fabric maker, the chair has a semicircular padded armrest that seems to embrace the sitter. Ditzel began designing in wicker and in 1959 produced the “Hanging chair.” The piece, suspended from the ceiling by a chain, became a favorite for fashion shoots and may be as iconic of the 1960s as Eero Aarnio’s plastic ball chair of 1963.

     In 1956, Ditzel began designing for the Danish silverware firm Georg Jensen. In an association that lasted some 40 years, Ditzel would create organically shaped jewelry, barware, ceramic tableware and even tablecloths. Like her fellow Dane Verner Panton, Ditzel was not afraid to embrace industrial materials, and she began designing fiberglass chairs in the mid-1960s. Some of her most flamboyant work came toward the end of her career, in pieces such as 1989’s “Bench for Two,” with its shocking Op-art finish, or the “Trinidad chair” of 1992, with it’s sunburst-like, cut-though backs. Such feats of creativity were a fitting coda to one of the most imaginative, prolific and remarkable women of modern design.
