Dutch designer Friso Kramer was born in Amsterdam in 1922 and has been at the forefront of Dutch design since the 1940s. After graduating from the Rietveld Academy of Applied Arts, Kramer worked as a designer for the steel manufacturer Ahrend de Cirkel from 1948 to 1963. His designs are appreciated by an ever expanding public who acknowledge the quality of these well-considered, sophisticated, reliable pieces. Inspired by the work of Jean Prouvé in Europe and Charles & Ray Eames in the US, Friso Kramer designed a series of chairs for the Dutch manufacturer Ahrend de Cirkel. Of all Kramer’s many successful chair designs, one of the most famous is the ‘Result’ chair, with the sharply angled scissor legs, which was first designed in 1957.
The original industrial Friso Kramer “Result” chairs were manufactured by Ahrend de Cirkel. The structure of the chair is made of enameled black metal structure, while the seat and back support are in plywood.
