An icon for living

2018 marks the 25th anniversary of the classic Trinidad chair, designed by legendary designer Nanna Ditzel

To celebrate the 25th anniversary of Nanna Ditzel’s iconic Trinidad chair, Fredericia presents a selection of new shades enhancing the natural beauty of the materials in a contemporary manner.

The new editions are available in smoked, grey and light grey oak leaving the veneer with a visible wooden structure. This aesthetic creates a warm atmosphere in its given setting; from residential homes and professional workspaces to luxurious restaurants. These shades become especially pronounced when combined with a frame in the new warm-matt colour Flint.

Nanna Ditzel (1923-2005) is one of the most significant figures of Danish design heritage. She is best known for her uncompromising approach to quality, playful shapes and a magnificent ability to transform her artistic dreams into very functional and sophisticated designs

With Trinidad, Nanna Ditzel turned the modernist mantra of material reduction against its original intent. The cut-out fretwork of the curved shells not only lightens the visual density of the chair, but it also functions as a decorative element.

Inspired by her travels, Nanna Ditzel designed the Trinidad chair combining signature detailing with effortless elegance, while always aiming for great comfort and a sleek appearance.

- On Trinidad, I fell in love with the elaborate fretwork of the colonial facades, which almost dissolve in light and shadow – and this lace-like lightness I wanted to interpret into a chair, Nanna Ditzel said.

Trinidad in new shades is available from February 2018.
