Lounge Chair (Denmark)
Nanna and Jørgen Ditzel were the leading post-war Danish designers of wicker furniture. Their experimental designs won numerous awards including silver medals at the Milan Triennale in 1951 and 1957 and a gold medal in 1960. The organic form of this chair served as a precursor to one of their best-selling designs, a hanging wicker chair. The open oval form allows for the user to sit in a variety of ways.
