The Result chair, designed by Friso Kramer and Wim Rietveld for Ahrend in the 1950s, has been relaunched by Hay in collaboration with Ahrend. A simplistic combination of sleek steel frame and curved plywood seat and back, Result was regarded in the 50s as a masterpiece in the innovative use of sheet steel, and it has maintained its fresh appearance until today. Thanks to its light and functionalist design, Result used to be a popular chair in Scandinavian schools, and it has been widely used in both public and private contexts. Framer and Rietveld created the Result chair as a pair for the Pyramid table, which makes a perfect match for the chair. Result is available in several different combinations of base colours and wood finishes.
In 2021, Hay renewed the surface treatments of its wood furniture by replacing the paints and lacquers with more environmentally friendly, water-based alternatives. Please note that due to this, natural wood furniture now comes with only one lacquer option instead of the previous two: the new water-based lacquer is glossier than the matte lacquer previously used, but slightly more matte than Hay’s previous clear lacquer.
