The Danish designers Nanna and Jørgen Ditzel exhibited their first furniture designs in Copenhagen in the 1940's. Nanna Ditzel’s experimental approach to materials resulted in the her iconic rattan chair collection, which is designed on the basis of the body. After Jørgen Ditzel’s death in 1961, Nanna continued to design, and in 1968 she moved to London where she established the Interspace International Furniture and Design Centre, an institution which developed a high reputation as a centre for experimental design. Nanna Ditzel returned to denmark in 1986 and opened a combined design studio and furniture workshop in Copenhagen.
