DESIGNER: NANNA DITZEL, 1993 DENMARK
When designing the Trinidad Chair in 1993, Nanna Ditzel found inspiration in the elaborate fretwork from the Gingerbread Facades that she had seen in colonial architecture while travelling through Trinidad. Much like the facades, the cut-out fretwork of the chair triggers an interplay of light and shadows, creating a pattern projected into space and a subtle sense of motion.
The cut-outs featured in the curved shell not only function as a decorative element but also dramatically lighten the visual density of the chair. A process involving the most advanced CNC technology at the time and techniques normally impossible in plywood shell furniture. When the chair was first introduced, it was heralded as a breakthrough in design technology.
