Result Chair

By HAY

£219.00

  • Description

    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.

    Friso Kramer & Wim Rietveld

    Friso Kramer and Wim Rietveld are an iconic design duo, perhaps most regarded for their work on the Result Chair and Pyramid collection of tables and benches, recently reimagined by Hay.

    The Result Chair in particular is an excellent display of the pair’s ingenuity, creating a tremendously functional chair while being sparing in their use of materials, leaving the finished product with an aesthetically pleasing form, while retaining high levels of functionality.

    This combination allowed the Result Chair to be produced for use in schools in the Netherlands throughout the 1960s and 1970s, leaving a lasting impression on a generation of Dutch people, as the chair was a feature in their daily lives.

    Other important pieces include "The Spokeback Sofa" designed in 1945, which with its lightness and simple, open construction differed from most sofas at the time, and "The Spanish Chair" from 1959, a low, robust easy chair
