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.
