The Grand Prix, also known as 3130, is another chair in the Arne Jacobsen collection originally produced in 1957 by Fritz Hansen for the Designers' Spring Exhibition at the Danish Museum of Art and Design in Copenhagen.
This product can also be upholstered in various types of fabric and leather.
The chair gained its title at the Triennale exhibition in Milan where it received the highest distinction called the Grand Prix. The chair has a minimalistic design and is a striking item either alone or accompanied. The Grand Prix is also stackable which means the item is practical for various different uses and contexts.
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 this, the chair has always been called the Grand Prix chair. Up to recently, the Grand Prix was only available with a steel chromed base, but now it is also available on its original design with wooden legs.
Today, the chair is an ideal chair with a wide range of applications, such as dining, conference, office and the private home. The slim shell is composed of 9 layers of veneer plus 2 layers of cotton textile and rests on a base made of mirror chromed or satin chromed steel in different heights. It is lightweight and stackable and is also available in an extensive palette of colours, types of wood and with fabric or leather upholstery.
