May 31, 2008
Nanna Ditzel knows how to make furniture design. From the start of her career in the post war years, she has continuously been working with new materials and new techniques. Various materials such as fibre glass, wickerwork and foam rubber are all included in here furniture designs.

The Trinidad chair is one of Nanna Ditzel's greatest successes. The chair was designed in 1993. It has long since achieved the status of a modern classic furniture design. The distinctive chair takes its name from Trinidad, whose traditional fretwork techniques inspired Nanna Ditzel.

Nanna Ditzel was a seemingly inexhaustible source of creativity and innovation that spanned a long life and career. The Danish queen of design had a very practical and operative method towards her design, as well as combining that with many streams of influence and the result is a very eclectic range of creations. One of those most popular and influential piece is the Trinidad Chair, inspired by the country of Trinidad in the Caribbean. Created in 1993 and was inspired by the island-like feel and the tradition fretwork techniques done there, she infused it with the modern and made it completely her own, as the very distinct chair reflects the cool, carefree nature of Trinidad. It has become one her most successful pieces and widely known, and is still in production today.

It has been tagged as a true "modern classic", as the chair has a natural functionality about it as well complimenting any décor with its fan shaped back rest and matching flowing carvings creates a breezy and summery effect. The illusion that carvings produce makes light fully interrelate with the room, creating layers with simplicity. The original model without any armrests is stackable, and stands on four chromed steel legs, as the seat mimics the backrest in design and shape, where both are ergonomically designed to hold the individual with much comfort and ease. As the chair's backrest curves to support the back, and bolstered at the bottom of the wood to the frame, giving it a very unique look. The chair wood options are maple, beech, cherry, walnut, birch, black ash, oak and teak, as there is also the option of a wide range of colour lacquers. The Trinidad Chair also comes with the choice of an armrest or upholstered seat in fabric or leather of your liking.

The Trinidad Chair's dimension includes a width of 48.5cm, a diameter of 57cm, a height of 84cm, and a seat height of 45cm, whereas the armchair's dimensions includes all of these except it now has a width of 61cm. In addition, the frame of the chair including the legs can also come in mat chrome, black, and metallic grey paint. The chair is currently being manufactured by Frederica Furniture, and is a timeless beauty, with its relaxed flowing feel and appearance still resonates today as it did when it was first created.
