Designed by Arne Jacobsen
Fritz Hansen introduced Arne Jacobsen’s Grand Prix™ design in 1957 at the Designers’ Spring Exhibition at the Danish Museum of Art and Design in Copenhagen. Later that year, the chair was displayed at the Triennale in Milan, where it won the Grand Prix: the finest distinction of the exhibition and the reason behind the chair’s moniker.The Grand Prix chair is available with a steel base in three different heights or with its original wooden base, making it an ideal chair for a wide range of applications. An extensive palette of colours, wood types, and fabric or leather upholstery options allows for further personalisation. The steel base chairs are stackable.
