Chair with Mussel Design
The Trinidad Chair was designed for Frederica by Nanna Ditzel - one of the most important and innovative designers of the 20th Century. The design is a timeless, stackable chair with an exciting backrest design.
Seat and Back-Rest with Cut-Outs
The design of the backrest and seat were inspired by mussel shells and house fronts in Trinidad. They are made of bent wood featuring long cut out grooves, which have been shaped into the wood using CNC technology. When the chair was introduced in 1993, this production technique was brand new. The cut-outs in the back rest and seat play with the light shining through and let the chair melt into its surroundings. The grooves also ensure hours of comfortable sitting, especially as they allow a constant flow of air, meaning that the chair always stays at room temperature.
The Trinidad Chair is available in various wood types and colours. The frame of the chair is made of powder-coated or chromed steel. The design is also available as a bar stool and in a version with arm rests. All Trinidad Chairs by Nanna Ditzel for Fredericia are produced in Denmark.
