GJ Chair/Table by Lange Production
1963 (Reedition 2008)
The launch of Grete Jalk’s chair – the GJ Chair, and the GJ Nesting Table marks the beginning of a new era for Lange Production, who will also start producing furniture of numerous other designers.
The common characteristic of our work will continue to be Form, Function & Finish. Retention of the Form, Function & Finish in Grete Jalk’s world famous furniture from 1963 has been crucial to Lange Production. Consequently, several Danish cultural institutions have been involved in this project.
The Danish Design School in Copenhagen, the Danish Museum of Art and Design – who hold Grete Jalk’s original drawings and furniture, and Trapholt in Kolding – who are also in possession of a set of furniture from 1963, to name a few.
Due to the complexity of the chair’s design, only around 300 copies were originally produced. Only a few remain in existence today. Lange Production has chosen to launch the furniture in their original wood species, Teak and Oregon Pine. All of the furniture will be manufactured in Denmark by the leading manufacturer of moulded plywood products.
