Friso Kramer and Wim Rietveld
for Ahrend, relaunched together with HAY
The Result Chair (1959) is a design that has endured, proving the worth of the ideas that were initially put into their creation. Designed by Wim Rietveld and Friso Kramer, Result uses the cutout sheet steel construction method of manufacture to create a chair that is adaptable, light and strong. Created to last a long time, you can still find Result chairs produced in the 50s and 60s in use today.

“We are mainly known as a company who collaborates with designers from our own time, but for me the link between these products and what we have been doing, is the approach to industrial design they employed to make them. The idea of working with materials and construction in an intelligent and reliable way, creating as much value for clients at a reasonable price; the Result Chair and Pyramid Table were originally about just this.” Rolf Hay
“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.
HAY and Ahrend are pleased to bring these designs back into production, for a new generation to enjoy.
