Grand Prix Chair with Wood Veneer finish.
During the 1950s Arne Jacobsen designed a range of products, which have since become world class design icons renowned for their sculptural forms and timeless appearance. The first chair was the Ant in 1952 which was followed by the Series Seven chair in 1955 and the Egg and the Swan in 1958, developed especially for the SAS Royal Hotel in Copenhagen, which was in fact also designed by Arne Jacobsen.
Between the launch of the Series Seven chair and the opening of the Royal Hotel another chair was introduced as model 3130 in 1957. This chair, which was produced under the same principles as the Ant and the Seven Chair, was characterized by its unique shape and was originally available with both wooden and metal legs.
Shortly after the introduction it won the Grand Prix prize at the XI Triennale in Milan, and was hereafter always referred to as the Grand Prix chair.
