Hanging Egg outdoor chair, 1959

Hanging Egg outdoor chair by Nanna Ditzel for Sika Design.

Prior to graduating as a furniture designer from The School of Arts and Crafts and the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Copenhagen in 1946, Nanna Ditzel worked as a cabinet maker. Shortly after graduating, Ditzel founded her own design studio with Jørgen Ditzel. Born in 1923, Ditzel was designing at a time where new materials and processes were emerging and produced innovative pieces in a wide array of materials including fibreglass, wicker and rubber.

Despite working in a male-dominated industry, Ditzel succeeded in becoming a highly successful designer, with a career spanning 60 years. Her works are still in constant production to this day.

Founded in 1940 by Ankjær Andreasen, Sika Design remains a family run business producing handmade wicker furniture. The company focus on comfort, quality and sustainability in all design and manufacturing processes.

Produced by Sika as part of the Icons range, most of us are familiar with the iconic design of the egg-shaped chair floating in the air. The Hanging Egg Chair is a critically acclaimed design that has enjoyed praise worldwide ever since the distinctive sculptural shape was created by Nanna Ditzel in 1959.

The name comes from the Sika deer which is light and elegant. The company was established in Mossø, where, during the war, there was growing unemployment and shortage of raw materials. The production was based on free raw materials, such as straw from the fields after harvest and reeds gathered from the marshes. After the war, there was also a production of baskets made from wicker in the state prison of Horsens.
