HAY Result chair is a design that is originally created by Friso Kramer & Wim Rietveld which features a thin steel-sheet base with an oak seat and backrest, retaining maximum flexibility, lightness and strength. This chair from (1958) is one of the most famous designs from Friso Kramer and Wim Rietveld. Together with Ahrend, HAY has reproduced the Rietveld and Kramer’s original design of the result chair! Thanks to its light and functionalist design, Framer and Rietveld created also the HAY Result & Pyramid collectie, which makes a perfect match for the chair. The HAY Result chair is available in several different combinations of base colour and wood finishes.
This is a simplistic combination of sleek steel frame and curved plywood seat and back. Although it is a 50s masterpiece it still maintained its fresh appearance until today. This also gave me a kind of nostalgic feeling from back in the days as the Result chair and Pyramid designs were produced predominantly for schools in the Netherlands in the 1960s and ’70s.
Currently I am pursuing a minimalistic room with neutral tones but it tends to feel cold or bland. However there are many fool proof trick that remedies this every time by using different textures. It is very easy to turn up the temperature with knitted throws, plants and rugs for that much-needed comfort factor. I try to keep it simple. Tone everything down, pare everything back and abide by the less is more approach. As you can see the corridor looks super minimal but a minimalist design can be beautiful, warm, rich, and inviting. I am happy that this HAY result chair can be placed anywhere in the house, whether it is comfy study chair for in the study/office room or a handy chair next to the coat rack in the corridor. Most importantly, it is a comfortable chair – you must sit in it to believe it.
