We're excited to report that Lange Production is re-issuing this brilliant chair designed by the late Danish furniture designer Grete Jalk. Known as the GJ chair, this molded plywood masterpiece was first introduced in 1963 at the Daily Mail International Furniture competition. Jalk won the British competition and later that year the Museum of Modern Art bought the chair where it's remained in their permanent collection ever since. Due to the complexity of the design, only around 300 copies were originally produced and only a few of those remain in existence today. Lange Production has chosen to launch the furniture in their original wood species, Teak and Oregon Pine, and have added a new black stained ash model. You can find the chair here in the States at Suite New York. We've included a slideshow to highlight more of Jalk's incredible designs, but to see more of her work as well as other Danish Modern masterpieces you should definitely click here to order the new beautifully photographed book by Andrew Hollingsworth.
