Grete Jalk for Fritz Hansen, lounge chair, metal, fabric, Denmark, 1968.
A postwar lounge chair designed by Grete Jalk in 1968. The piece is executed with a tubular chromed steel frame and red cushions in the shape of the frame. The piece therefore has a strong shell-like aesthetic. The design shows on one hand minimalistic, functional tendencies whilst, on the other hand, fits within a wider range of midcentury modernism due to the soft, organic shapes. Grete Jalk experimented continuously with new materials and production techniques, which this model is a wonderful example of, with its curved tubular frame.
Grete Jalk (1920-2000) was a Danish furniture designer. After studying at the Design School for Women, she also studied at the Danish Design School which she finished in 1946. Her designs are much inspired by Alvar Aalto and Charles Eames. Mostly, her designs are characterized by boldly curved shapes and their comfortable lines.
