Vintage Arne Jacobsen/Fritz Hansen Model 4130 Grand Prix

Vintage Arne Jacobsen/Fritz Hansen Model 4130 Grand Prix

The Grand Prix chair from 1957 is the only shell chair by Arne Jacobsen that was not designed with steel legs.
The chair, which is made entirely in wood, represents Arne Jacobsen’s attempt at creating a lightweight, modern chair that appealed to an audience who did not find steel to match their home interior. The Grand Prix chair, which was not designed for a specific building project, was presented in a series of exhibitions in Denmark and other European countries in 1957. In the Danish press, it was celebrated as a technical sensation, and at the Milan Triennial it was awarded the finest distinction of the exhibition, the ‘Grand Prix’, which has been the chair’s name ever since.


Thes two chairs are in a beautiful vintage condition, been put away 20 years ago in a storrage and never been used again.
Backrest is still verry solid.
