The Grand Prix Chair by Han Kjobenhavn, a studio based in Copenhagen, Denmark, is a modernized version of an original design created back in 1957 by late Danish architect and designer Arne Emil Jacobsen. The iconic angular shape is maintained, which happens to bring to mind a few modern artworks due to its geometric aesthetic, yet the materials have changed slightly.

Produced by furniture manufacturer Fritz Hansen, the Grand Prix Chair by Han Kjobenhavn has been reiterated with a bent steel backrest that has been finished with a linen thread woven to create a netted pattern. It is finished with a wooden seat fashioned either out of oak or walnut as well as legs made of oak wood but with a black lacquer finish.
