This piece is an original licensed Fritz Hansen piece.
The Grand Prix (model 3130) was introduced by Fritz Hansen at the Designers' Spring Exhibition at the Danish Museum of Art & Design in Copenhagen in 1957. Later that year the chair was displayed at the Triennale in Milan where it received the Grand Prix - the finest distinction of the exhibition. The Grand Prix chair was originally produced with wooden legs however, these were later replaced by the metal undercarriage used on the 3107s.
Thanks to new production methods the chair is now available in the original design. Despite the affordable price, the chair remains exclusive. The attention to detail and the unique design create a bold and exceptional statement that makes the Grand Prix chair as relevant today as it was more than 50 years ago. The chair will blend elegantly into a wide variety of settings as a great example of furniture design that is able to influence and elevate an entire room by its mere presence and beauty.

The chair is also available with front or full upholstery in fabric or leather. The Grand Prix 4130 chair has 4 wooden legs is not stackable and has a standard seat height of 46.5 cm.
