Lange Production GJ Chair
Designed by Grete Jalk (1920-2006) in 1963, the Laminated Chair is regarded today as the Danish designer's best-known work. The expressive sculptural form of the chair, composed of two similarly shaped pieces of moulded plywood, marks a late highlight in the engagement of prominent designers with this material, which had commenced in the 1930s.
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.
