RESULT ARMCHAIR

 

The Result Armchair shares the same thin steel-sheet base, oak seat and backrest as the original Result Chair, but is supplemented by elevated armests that bring additional comfort and functionality to the design. Originally created by Friso Kramer and Wim Rietveld while working at Ahrend in the 1950s, the cutout steel collection has been relaunched by HAY together with Ahrend. It is available in a variety of wood finishes and base colours, as well as a variant with upholstered seat and a fully upholstered version offered in a wide range of textiles and leather options. All variants can be coordinated with the Pyramid Table, making it a versatile seating set-up for use in many public and private contexts.

RESULT ARMCHAIR / Designer

Wim Rietveld (1924-1985) and Friso Kramer (b. 1922) were both Dutch-born.  Wim Rietveld was an industrial furniture designer who studied Industrial Design at The Hague Academy, before starting work in 1958 at De Cirkel, a manufacturer of steel furniture that had merged with the Ahrend group in 1939. Friso Kramer studied Interior Design at the Institute of Applied Arts in Amsterdam, before he also worked at De Cirkel as a designer from 1948-1963. It was during their time at De Cirkel that the two designers met, together developing a number of iconic design collaborations, including the Result Chair in 1958. Together with Ahrend, HAY has reproduced the Rietveld and Kramer’s original design of the Result Chair.
