Jacobsen’s Grand Prix Chair was first introduced in 1957 by Fritz Hansen at the Designers’ Spring Exhibition at the Danish Museum of Art & Design in Copenhagen. Jacobsen and Hansen had worked together before, with their partnership dating back to as early as 1934. It got its name after winning the Grand Prix at the Triennale di Milano in 1957. It followed on the heels of the successes of the Ant Chair in 1952 and the Series 7 Chair in 1955, the Grand Prix was considered an updated version as it had a similar design with wooden legs.
Arne Jacobsen was one of Denmark’s most influential modern designers and a pioneer of minimalist Danish style. Part genius, part visionary, his creations included furniture, lighting, textiles and silverware. But he is best known for his elegant yet functional chair designs, the most famous of these being The Egg Chair, The Swan Chair, The Series 7 Chair and The Ant Chair. All Arne Jacobsen products complement each other perfectly, allowing you to mix, match and create your own unique style.
