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.
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. 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 is one of the most famous designs from Friso Kramer and Wim Rietveld. We instantly knew that this collaboration has a unique potential, making these Dutch design icons available again, not only to corporate clients whom we are used to serve, but also to the domestic market around the world. The mutual respect for these eternal designs is the cornerstone of this inspiring venture.” Eugène Sterken, CEO of Ahrend.
