The grand re-introduction of Arne Jacobsen’s Grand Prix Table

2017 marks the 60th anniversary of Arne Jacobsen’s famous Grand Prix™ Chair – a design that earned its name after winning the prestigious Grand Prix prize at the Triennale in Milan in 1957. Arne Jacobsen designed the Grand Prix Table alongside the chair, but the table only got to meet its audience for a short while due to challenges in production. Now, as a celebration of the Grand Prix Chair, Republic of Fritz Hansen™ is relaunching the Grand Prix Table.

FRITZ HANSEN RELEASES STRONG FINANCIAL STATEMENT

Republic of Fritz Hansen™ releases positive financial statements for 2016 with a turnover of DKK 602m and an 8% growth rate. Profit before tax amounted to DKK 125m, which is an 16% increase compared to 2015, and the best result in the company’s 145-year history. The result should be seen as part of the growth plan aimed at ensuring a turnover of DKK 750m for the company in 2018.

Market development in 2016
The greater part of the realised growth derives from the Danish domestic market, which has experienced an increase of 7%, and from the US and Asia with an increase of 20 and 31%, respectively. In the US, there is an increasing interest in Danish design, particularly in the contract market where the growth derives from a number of large project orders for both new Fritz Hansen designs and classics. One example of this is the cooperation between Bjarke Ingels’ design division, KiBiSi and Fritz Hansen which in May 2016 resulted in the presentation of the VIA57™ chair, designed for the prestigious VIA57 WEST skyscraper in New York, which is BIG architects’ first project in Manhattan.

MEET LUNE

Republic of Fritz Hansen TM and Jaime Hayon invite lovers of Danish design to experience a new sofa concept: the modular Lune™. Forget all your conventional thoughts about modular sofas. Lune is different. Born out of Hayon's Ro™ and Fri™ chair design concepts, Lune is based on the same curvy design philosophy, making it quite distinct from other modular sofas. The bold design looks and feels like a conventional sofa but offers the versatility of a modular construction. For a 360-degree design experience, Fritz Hansen and Hayon have also created new Objects pieces to complete the ambience.  Download press kit

Fritz Hansen has revitalised the Table Series™, which began with the 1969 Super-Elliptical™ table designed by Piet Hein, Bruno Mathsson and Arne Jacobsen, with an enhanced, nanotechnology-based laminate tabletop.
The low-reflective laminate creates a beautiful matte surface that is highly scratch resistant and easy to clean. The tabletop is available in eight distinct colours; whether one opts for the statement Pink Colorado tabletop with a chrome base or the classic Black tabletop with a black base for a minimalist, monochromatic look, the new palette is certain to add personality to any interior.
