The Grand Prix™ (3130) design, by Arne Jacobsen was introduced by Fritz Hansen at the Designers’ Spring Exhibition at the Danish Museum of Art & Design in Copenhagen, in 1957. Later that year, the chair was displayed at the Triennale in Milan where it received the Grand Prix – the finest distinction of the exhibition. After which the chair has always been called the Grand Prix Chair™. Originally, the Grand Prix chair was introduced with a wooden and steel base and is an ideal chair with a wide range of applications, such as dining, conference, office and the private home. It is lightweight and stackable and is available in an extensive palette of colours, wood types and with fabric or leather upholstery.
I love the shape of the back of this chair and that it is available in a variety of different materials and colours. The shape is sleek and the materials play a huge part in customizing it and making it your own.
