2. Aurora Colours, Marmo Collection

This unreleased design by architect Nanna Ditzel was created in 1983 during a 10-year collaboration with Niels Krüger. In wood-turned and steam-bent oak, it features Ditzel’s elegant geometries, and circles, plus the arches that give the chair its name.

By Zanellato/Bortotto for Del Savio 1910
