Grete Jalk

Danish furniture designer Grete Jalk has a prominent place among Danish Modern Design starting from 1960s. She studied design in Copenhagen under famous designer Kaare Klint. In 1953, Jalk opened her own design studio. Inspired by Alvar Aalto's laminated bent-plywood furniture and Charles Eames' moulded plywood designs, she began to develop her own boldly curved models. Her most famous designs are the GJ Chair, made solely from bent plywood that looks like a ribbon bent in the air. Only a few examples of the 300 originals remain today. Her other famous designs include laminated plywood furniture, such as the Side Chair of 1962, and tubular steel furniture for manufacturer Fritz Hensen, such as the Easy Chair of 1964. In 1963, Jalk designed a moulded teak chair that used two pieces of plywood bent into almost impossible forms. The chair was manufactured for Poul Jeppesen, a company that would help Scandinavia become renowned for fine modern furniture.
