Yesterday night I was taking a walk in the Brera district in Milan, passed by the Fritz Hansen store and noticed this wonderful table through their windows: the Gran Prix table.
Together with the Gran Prix chair, name like this after winning the prestigious Grand Prix prize at La Triennale in Milan in 1957, Arne Jacobsen also designed the Grand Prix table.
The table was only sold for a limited time due to some manufacturing problems. Today, Fritz Hansen celebrates the 60 birthday of the Grand Prix series by relaunching the Grand Prix table in an optimized version.
Can you believe these table and chairs were designed 60 years ago? So inspiring…
