The Grand Prix™ chair was designed by the Danish architect and designer Arne Jacobsen in 1957 and was first presented at the Spring Exhibition for Danish crafts and furniture design. The chair was originally presented as Model 3130 but was renamed after being awarded the prestigious Grand Prix at Triennale di Milano in 1957. It is a great example of a furniture design that is able to enhance an entire room with its mere presence.
The shell is steam bent in one piece made out of 9 layers of veneer. These layers are always lined with Indian cotton on the inside. The chair is available in two natural wood types and in 2 colours in coloured ash (the grain is visible and two shells might not be 100% identical). It is available as front upholstered and fully upholstered as well.
The base consists of 4 wooden legs and is non-stackable.
Base material: Oak
