Nice and rare set of 4 Result chairs with ciranol seats and back. Designed for Ahrend de Cirkel in 1958. The Result chair was a collaboration between Wim Rietveld who has just switched from Gispen to the competitive company Ahrend and Friso Kramer who invited Wim Rietveld to come work at Ahrend de Cirkel. The influences of both Kramer and Rietveld are strongly visible in this chair that was originally designed as a school chair to compete with the tubular chairs from that time that were more expensive to make.

The great advantage of this chair was that the frame was designed in a way that if it fell on the floor, the base would take the fall and not the back so it wouldn’t damage. This was of course one of the problems in a school, the chair had to be strong. Another thing is that students love to wiggle on these chairs and therefore the frame is a little bit bendable but still very stable, meaning when you would put the chair on an uneven floor, all of its 4 leggs would still be on the floor. This chair is quite a masterpiece if you know the thoughts behind the design of this chair. Because of this it got a Signe d’Or in 1960.

These chairs are quite uncommon as they have black metal folded frame and colored ciranol seats and backs where these were mass produced in wood for school purposes. These Result chairs with ciranol seats could be orderd in 16 different colors and are very hard to find. They are in very nice original condition with minimal wear due to age and usage. Some of the seats have some surface cracks which are normal with these chairs, they dont effect the stability or comfort in any way but they are visible.

The designs of Friso Kramer are highly sought after because of their progressive designs. Even though this chair was designed in 1958. Friso Kramer was a functionalist, all of his pieces are well thought about and amazingly executed. Even though most of his designs were produced in large numbers the process before that was really intense and time taking. And the result of that was a great production process with fantastic ergonomic result.
