Friso Kramer Kramer was born in Amsterdam in 1922 and is the son of the Amsterdam School architect Piet Kramer. He studied at the Institute of Applied Art in Amsterdam interior architect. 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 revolt and result chairs are one of Kramers most inventive and revolutionary designs. These chairs are exceptional by their modern and progressive design and the new construction methods of the sheet metal. Both chairs were awarded with the Signe d’Or. In 1977 and 1978 a retrospective of his work was at the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam, and in 1991 at the Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen in Rotterdam. Kramer was a board member of the Gerrit Rietveld Academy and the Amsterdam Arts Council. Global shipping available.
