Nanna Ditzel combined solid craftsmanship with artistic and cultural flair and inspiration. With this approach, she created unique and universal design icons. Looking at Ditzel’s design and sensing the connection between craftsmanship and inspiration, we understand how ‘the new thing’ does not arise out of mindlessly repeating the known, but comes when you are inspired, propelled by curiosity, to challenge the status quo while drawing on a rich, even startling variety of sources.
Celebrating the 100th anniversary of Nanna Ditzel’s birth, this exhibition – at the museum Trapholt, Kolding, Denmark – called Nanna Ditzel – Taking Design to New Heights will be the most extensive show about her ever staged. It presents the story of how you can express yourself and evolve by being in touch with the inspiration that art, culture, nature and everyday life can offer. (text from the Trapholt website)
During October and November 2023 we will finish our work at the catalogue for the exhibition – expected to be published in November. Stay tuned for more info.
