The Fritz Hansen Grand Prix Chair, or 3130 as it was originally named, by Arne Jacobsen for Fritz Hansen was introduced in 1957 at the Designer's Spring Exhibition at the Danish Museum of Art & Design in Copenhagen. Later the following year it was awarded the 'Grand Prix' at the Triennale in Milan - the finest distinction of the exhibition, after which the 3130 received its new name.
Like its sister Series 7 Chair and Ant Chair Grand Prix is made up of 9 layers of beech veneer and has a chromed four leg base, making it a stackable chair. Its shape also allows Grand Prix to flex to the body's contours, making it an extremely comfortable chair.
Suitable for just about any application the Grand Prix Chair comes in a range of several coloured ash finishes as well as natural wood in oak or walnut.
Coloured Ash - Ash has a wide grain and this is fully visible through the colour finish.
Natural- A natural wooden veneer with a clear lacquer where grain and texture and natural wood colour are clearly visible.
Oak - A natural wooden finish with full grain visible.
Arne Jacobsen was born in Copenhagen in 1902 and graduated from the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in architecture in 1927. He was prolific both as an architect and as a designer. He is most famous for designing the SAS Royal Hotel in Copenhagen, and for the interior, the Egg and Swan Chair together with the Swan Sofa and Series 3300 with Fritz Hansen. This propelled the Arne Jacobsen name into furniture history.
