The award-winning Grand Prix Char with Wood Legs is one of the finest examples of modern Danish design around today, designed by Arne Jacobsen in 1957. The Grand Prix Char with Wood Legs is produced under license by Fritz Hansen using simple tools, quality materials and time-honoured techniques. Introduced by Fritz Hansen in 1957 at the designers’ Spring Exhibition in Copenhagen and later displayed in Milan where it received the Grand Prix – where it gets its name. The Grand Prix chair has become an influential design for both aesthetics & its ergonomics.
