The HAY Pyramid Bench 12 is constructed from solid oak with a folded steel frame. It is designed to work alongside the Pyramid Table in dining situations, or as a standalone furniture piece. With it's long length and shallow depth it would make a perfect addition to a long hallway. The natural strength of oak paired with the artful steel frame creates a bench that is visually light but remarkably strong. With a pioneering 1950's aesthetic, the Pyramid Bench brings the pinnacle of modernist style to any environment.
Created to be adaptable, light and strong, the Result Chair and Pyramid series are the last word in cutout sheet steel construction. Originally created by Friso Kramer and Wim Rietveld while working at Ahrend in the 1950s, the collection has been relaunched by HAY together with Ahrend.
When initially launched in the ‘50s, it was regarded as a triumph in its innovative use of sheet steel, giving new direction for use in organically shaped products. Today, both as individual pieces and as a collection, it is notable for its sparing use of materials, simplistic construction and for being light enough to move around. These lasting designs manifest functional excellence and aesthetical lightness that have been proved in real environments over several generations.
