The Grand Prix Table returns after 60 years

Fritz Hansen unveils the grand re-introduction of Arne Jacobsen’s Grand Prix Table

2017 marks the 60th anniversary of Arne Jacobsen’s famous Grand Prix Chair – a design that earned its name after winning the prestigious Grand Prix prize at the Triennale in Milan in 1957.

Arne Jacobsen designed the Grand Prix Table alongside the chair, but the table only got to meet its audience for a short while due to challenges in production.

Now, as a celebration of the Grand Prix Chair, Republic of Fritz Hansen is relaunching the Grand Prix Table.

Original design with enhanced strength
Similar to the Grand Prix Chair, Arne Jacobsen originally designed the Grand Prix Table with solid beech legs and a lacquered veneer tabletop. However, the construction lacked stability and the table went out of production.

The Fritz Hansen design team recently undertook the task of changing the construction of the table without changing the design.

The resulting 2017 version has slightly wider, solid wood legs and features a steel rail under the lacquered veneer tabletop for optimised stability. The simple, modern table now comes in oak in three sizes, and features smooth, rounded edges that contribute to its soft expression.

The table will be available at Republic of Fritz Hansen Concept Stores as well as selected stores worldwide from September 2017.
