GJ TABLES GIGOGNES DE GRETE JALKE 1963

 

EDITEUR: LANGE PRODUCTION

DESCRIPTION:

Dessiné par Grete Jalk (1920-2006) en 1963, ces tables en bois courbé ont  été réalisé à l’époque par le cabinet Poul Jeppesen pour accompagner la fameuse chaise qu’elle avait créé. Bien qu’elle remporta le premier prix d’un concours organisé par le célèbre journal Daily Mail l’année de la sortie de la dite chaise, l’ensemble n’a pas été produit de manière industrielle. Due à la complexité du design de la chaise, les tables n’ont pas été produites car elles servaient d’accompagnement. Lange Production a choisi d’éditer ces tables avec les matériaux choisi à l’origine, c’est-à-dire en Teak et Pin d’orégon. Toute la production des tables se fait au Danemark par le leader de la production de bois courbé.

GJ TABLES BY GRETE JALK 1963

MANUFACTURER : LANGE PRODUCTION

DESCRIPTION:

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.

Designed by Grete Jalk (1920-2006) in 1963, the Laminated Chair is regarded today as the Danish designer’s best-known work. The chair, for which Jalk also created a companion side table, was realised in collaboration with the cabinetmaker Poul Jeppesen. Although it won first prize in a competition organised by the British newspaper Daily Mail during the year of its inception, the chair never went into industrial production.
Probably only a few pieces from the original series of approximately 300 still exist today. This explains the extremely high prices that have been paid for this model at international auctions in recent years. 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.
