Nanna Ditzel (1923-2005) was probably the most internationally acclaimed female designer in Denmark. Her style was characterized by simplicity and purity and a more bold but well-matched choice of colors. She often combined colors that seemingly did not go together, but which she managed to balance nonetheless.
Together with her husband Jørgen Ditzel she designed jewelry for Georg Jensen but also furniture and textiles which earned silver medals at the Triennale in Milan 1951, 1954, and 1957 and the gold medal in 1960. In 1956 they were awarded the Lunning Prize.
