the Pyramid Table features a steel-sheet base with a rectangular oak tabletop. Originally created by Wim Rietveld while working at Ahrend in the 1950s, the cutout steel collection has been relaunched by HAY together with Ahrend. The table comes in two models – with and without overhang – and is suitable for using in a wide range of educational institutions, corporate environments and private homes. Both variants are available in a variety of wood finishes and base colours that can be coordinated with the Result Chair.
Wim Rietveld (1924-1985) and Friso Kramer (b. 1922) were both Dutch-born. Wim Rietveld was an industrial furniture designer who studied Industrial Design at The Hague Academy, before starting work in 1958 at De Cirkel, a manufacturer of steel furniture that had merged with the Ahrend group in 1939. Friso Kramer studied Interior Design at the Institute of Applied Arts in Amsterdam, before he also worked at De Cirkel as a designer from 1948-1963. It was during their time at De Cirkel that the two designers met, together developing a number of iconic design collaborations, including the Result Chair in 1958. Together with Ahrend, HAY has reproduced the Rietveld and Kramer’s original design of the Result Chair.
