Grand Prix Table

grand prix table

Design Arne Jacobsen, 1957
Solid oak wood, oak veneer
Made by Fritz Hansen

The Grand Prix™ chair by Arne Jacobsen received its name after winning the prestigious Grand Prix prize at the Triennale in Milan in 1957. Simultaneously, Arne Jacobsen created the Grand Prix table - an extension of the award winning chair - that only got to meet its audience for a short period of time. In 2017 we celebrate the chair's 60th anniversary by offering the tale of the Grand Prix™ table. A design built on superb craftsmanship and with family ties to the renowned chair by Arne Jacobsen.

The original wooden legs in solid oak make up the starting point for the table design that features the same shape and the same level of high quality craftsmanship as the chair. The construction is strong and the lacquered table top in oak veneer secures a resistant surface. Immerse in the simple design with its round and smooth edges fit for any classic or contemporary dining table setting. In other words, superior craftsmanship, renowned design and an appealing price point is the essence of the Grand Prix table.

The Grand Prix table comes in three sizes and one wood variant: oak. The three sizes are customized to fit both regular chairs and armchairs, meaning that the middle size for example can accommodate 4 armchairs or 6 chairs.
The base consists of four legs in solid wood, made in the same shape as the Grand Prix chair. Separating it from the original design in 1957, this launch of the table consists of wider legs securing an optimized stability. The stability is enhanced by a steel rail under the table top. The table top is made in oak veneer matching the color of the base and its round and smooth edges add a soft feel to the design.

Arne Jacobsen

Danish architect and designer Arne Emil Jacobsen (1902 – 1971) is remembered for his contribution to architectural Functionalism as well as for the worldwide success he enjoyed with simple but effective chair designs. After a spell as an apprentice mason, Jacobsen was admitted to the Architecture School at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, where from 1924 to 1927 he studied under Kay Fisker and Kaj Gottlob, both leading architects and designers. After completing architecture school, he first worked at city architect Poul Holsoe's architectural practice. In 1929, in collaboration with Flemming Lassen, he won a Danish Architect's Association competition for designing the "House of the Future" which was built full scale at the subsequent exhibition and helped Jacobsen be recognized as an ultra-modern architect. Later, the Ant and Series 7 chairs, produced in 1952 as a collaboration with Fritz Hansen, propelled both names into furniture history.
Fritz Hansen was established in 1872 by the visionary cabinetmaker of the same name. Since then, Fritz Hansen has become a natural part of both Danish and international design history. Today, it is an exclusive and international design brand. The history of Fritz Hansen is characterized by stupendous craftsmanship, unique design and an inherent sense of premium quality. Leading architects and furniture designers from all over the world have regularly contributed to the collection with beautifully shaped and functional furniture that seamlessly meet through the use of innovative techniques and new materials. Arne Jacobsen, Poul Kjćrholm, Piero Lissoni, Kasper Salto and Morten Voss – the stellar string of designers is long and the list of furniture of classic and iconic fame is even longer.
