Born in Copenhagen, she trained as a cabinetmaker at the Royal Academy’s furniture school and graduated in 1943. Ditzel’s early work adhered to the Classic Danish modernist tenets of simplicity, comfort and quality, and her armchairs, with their softly curved backrests are much in the spirit of Hans Wegner.
