Arkade Dining Chair Upholstered

Danish furniture brand Brdr. Krüger is launching a previosly unreleased chair by architect Nanna Ditzel, who passed in 2005.

This new addition to the Brdr. Krüger collection was initially designed in 1983 during a decade-long collaboration between Ditzel and Niels Krüger, 4th generation master craftsman in the Danish heritage company. The joint effort explored the synergy between Ditzel’s vision and Krüger’s expert craftsmanship, much in the spirit of Brdr. Krüger’s core values to this day.

The Arkade Chair exemplifies Ditzel’s signature of elegant geometries and fondness for soft circular shapes, expressed with recurring arches, hence the name Arkade, the Danish wordfor Arcade, and a nod to classic architecture.

Ditzel’s love for decoration and colors are articulated in the combination of materials and techniques used in the Arkade Chair, including wood-turned and steam bend solid oak, metal finishes in brass, black oxide, and chrome, as well as various fully upholstered textiles and leathers. All components can be modified for different finishes to allow for customisation and invite for a personal touch.

Brdr. Krüger has worked closely with Nanna Ditzel’s daughters on realizing the Arkade Chair. Jonas Krüger, Creative Director, says “We want to stay true to Nanna’s colorful character and unfold the Arkade Chair’s fullpotential, especially for interior architects, who can work with a chair full of personality, materiality, and customisation possibilities.”

Availabilty : Available from June 2020

Nanna Ditzel (1923 - 2005)

Nanna Ditzel (1923-2005), was an innovative leading figure in the renewal of Danish design and attracted worldwide attention. She became one of the most renowned Danish designers, and throughout her life she was awarded numerous design prizes, among those the lifelong Artists’ Grant by the Danish Ministry of Culture in 1998.

 

She welcomed inspiration from new materials and production methods. Very often, her works had a subjective starting point, which was contrary to specific problems to be solved. However, she had a magnificent ability to transform her artistic dreams into very functional and purposeful designs.
