    Pair of rare side chairs in fumed oak by Grete Jalk

    This rarely seen pair of side chairs (model 3-1) in slightly fumed oak with curvy seats was designed ca. 1956 by Grete Jalk (1920-2006). It is one of Grete Jalk’s first designs with bent wood. During the 1950s a number of designers began exploring the possibilities of moulding sheets of veneer into gently curved shapes. Charles and Ray Eames, Wegner, Alvar Aalto and Grete Jalk were among the those whom began bending the rules of nature. Around the time when these side chairs were designed, Jalk also designed her more famous and much more complex bent GJ Chair, but it was years later in the early 1960s that it was set in limited production by P. Jeppesen møbelfabrik  These side chairs were executed by P. Jeppesen Møbelfabrik, Danmark in the late 1950s. One of the side chairs has a paper label from the manufacturer. Both chairs are stamped are with ‘DANISH Furnituremakers CONTROL’. Jalk collaborated a great deal with P. Jeppesen Møbelfabrik founded by Poul Jeppesen. The factory later became PJ Furniture and also executed designs from modern masters like Ole Wanscher, Arne Hovmand-Olsen and Vilhelm Wohlert. The company is today owned by Carl Hansen & Son, Denmark. Literature: Mobilia 1957 H. 75 cm. (29,5") W. 54 cm. (21,3") Seating H. 48 cm. (18,9)
