In 1950 Nanna Ditzel and Jrgen Ditzel created an unusual bowl-shaped seat, essentially a basket hanging from a light oak frame, achieving a chair design that blended the seat and backrest into a bowl of a form consistent with a shell, out- standing for being organic in its form and in its materials.
The use of craft materials and painstaking skill in making the rounded form, along with the chairs pure lines give a sensation of comfort and luxury in a seat that allows a variety of positions.
Having been distinguished with awards at the Cabinetmakers Guild Exhibition and at the Milan Triennale in 1951, the wicker chair (1950) inspired a rediscovery and exploration of the malleable properties of wicker and, consequently, a renewed status for wicker furniture in interior design.
The 1950s wicker chair sparked a series of experiments with hanging upholstered shapes on wooden frames.
