Madame lounge chair , 1946

Madame lounge 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. She embraced the challenge, producing experimental and innovative pieces in a wide array of materials including fibreglass, wicker and rubber. As well as furniture design, Ditzel worked across other disciplines, exploring jewellery, tableware, applied arts and textiles.

Despite working in a very male-dominated industry, Ditzel succeeded in becoming a highly successful, acclaimed designer, with a career spanning 60 years. Her works are to this day still in constant production, with furniture ranges for Fredericia, Getama and Sika, textiles for Kvadrat and jewellery for Georg Jensen.

Produced by Sika as part of the Icons range. With the utmost respect to the original designs, Sika has put the chairs of Arne Jacobsen, Nanna & Jørgen Ditzel, Viggo Boesen and R.Wengler back into production. Significant names in Danish design history, they remain important for their groundbreaking creations and experimental use of materials. In their own way, each designer performed magic with the sturdy qualities of rattan and wicker.

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

The Madame lounge chair provides classic seating for all areas of the home. It is ideal for conservatories and outdoors in dry weather.

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.
