The precise transparency of the Trinidad chair almost dissolves in a play of light and shadow, yet at the same time gives the chair a strikingly bold voice. The chair without arms is stackable and comes with optional seat upholstery.
With Trinidad, Nanna Ditzel turned the modernist mantra of material reduction against its original intent. The cutout fretwork from the curved shell back not only lightens the visual density of the chair, but it also functions as a decorative element. Utilising new CNC technology, the Trinidad was heralded as a breakthrough when presented in 1993.
Designing the Trinidad, Nanna Ditzel found inspiration in the elaborate fretwork from the so-called Gingerbread Facades, that she had often seen whilst on a holiday in the Caribbean Island of Trinidad.
Like a Gingerbread facade, the Trinidad Chair gently plays with the sunlight, creating a sense of motion in the space. The lightweight design embraces the body and is designed to suit not only the setting, but also the person that sits on it.
The screen-shaped shells ensure formidable seating comfort for hours, and the sliced through seat and back compensates for a range of features that are normally impossible in plywood shell furniture: The body is always ventilated and the chair is always kept at room temperature, as well as providing excellent acoustics for an area where sound resonance should be reduced.
