The husband and wife team of Nanna and Jørgen Ditzel studied furniture design together at the Kunsthandvaerkskolen in Copenhagen and collaborated on furniture designs as well as textiles. Nanna Ditzel extended herself far beyond furniture, designing silver jewelry for Georg Jensen, kitchen units and even playgrounds. Ditzel never held herself to overly strict design principles, saying “When I start designing an object, anything is possible and permitted.”
