DESIGN BY FRISO KRAMER AND WIM REITVELD / RELAUNCHED BY HAY TOGHETER WITH AHREND
Created to be adaptable, light and strong, the Result Chair and Pyramid Tables are the last word in cutout sheet steel construction. Originally created by Friso Kramer and Wim Rietveld while working at Ahrend in the 1950s, the collection has been relaunched by HAY together with Ahrend. When initially launched in the ‘50s, it was regarded as a triumph in its innovative use of sheet steel, giving new direction for use in organically shaped products. Today, both as individual pieces and as a collection, it is notable for its sparing use of materials, simplistic construction and for being light enough to move around. These lasting designs manifest functional excellence and aesthetical lightness that have been proved in real environments over several generations. The Result Chair features a thin steel-sheet base with an oak seat and backrest, retaining maximum flexibility, lightness and strength, yet keeping the design minimalistic. Originally a popular chair in schools in the 1950s, Result’s clean aesthetics and durability mean it can be used in many public and private contexts. Available in a variety of wood finishes and base colours that can be coordinated with the Pyramid Table.
