Building up an icon (mass produced) – Part #14 » Trinidad Chair by Nanna Ditzel (1993)
Danish designer Nanna Ditzel lived for a time in the Caribbean Islands and whilst there, developed an interest for the colonial style wooden architecture and associated “fret-saw” designs known affectionately as “Gingerbread”. With the “Trinidad” Chair Danna Ditzel has transformed her impressions and ideas into a light and elegant stacking chair. Designed in 1993, it has long since achieved the status of modern classic. The chair won the 1995 ID Prize (The Danish Design Prize for Industrial Design) and the British Minerva Award for Product Design. In 1998, she followed up with the ergonomic and lightweight Trinidad Bar stool, making Trinidad an incredibly versatile and interesting option for fitting out restaurants, cafes, canteens and homes. Available with and without armrests and in 8 beautiful woods and 9 bright and fun laminate colors. The version without armrests is stackable. Produced by Fredericia Furniture.
