PYRAMID BENCH 11 / Variants
Created to be adaptable, light and strong, the Pyramid Benches are the last word in cutout sheet steel construction. Originally created by 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. This bench variant features a thin steel-sheet base with a rectangular oak top, sharing the same functional and uncluttered expression as the rest of the Pyramid collection. The bench’s light, stackable design and hardwearing quality make it suitable for being used in educational institutions and corporate environments. Available in a variety of wood finishes and base colours, it can be used as low side table or as a bench.
