The Grand PrixTM 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. Originally, the Grand Prix chair was introduced with a wooden base. Today, the chair is available both with a base of wood and chromed steel.

The shell is in pressure molded veneer. The inner veneer is always beech and the outer veneer is available in 2 different veneers: Oak and Walnut, as well as in one finish; coloured ash (lazur) in 9 different colours: White, Light Grey, dark Grey, Black, Yellow, Orange, Red, Petrol Blue or Sage Green. The chair is also available with front or full upholstery in fabric or leather. Full upholstery is only available with legs in Black coloured ash, Oak and Walnut. The base consists of 4 wooden legs matching the veneer/colour of the shell (non-stackable).
The base comes also with 14 mm chromed steel tubes with leg ferrules of black synthetic material (stackable, 3 seat heights). See model 3130.
