Designed to be functional, light and strong, the Pyramid benches feature a thin steel-sheet base with a rectangular oak top. 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 bench comes in two models and can be used as a low side table or seating solution in a wide variety of domestic or corporate contexts. Both variants are available in several wood finishes and base colours that can be coordinated with the Pyramid Table

Wim Rietveld

Wim Rietveld

Dutch-born Wim Rietveld (1924-1985) was an industrial furniture designer. He studied Industrial Design at The Hague Academy in 1950, before becoming head of design at Gispen in 1953. In 1958, he started working at De Cirkel, a manufacturer of steel furniture that had merged with the Ahrend group in 1939. Here he met Friso Kramer, and together they developed a number of iconic design collaborations, including the Result Chair in 1958. Rietveld also designed the Pyramid Tables and Chairs for Ahrend.

Rietveld was known for his functionalist chairs, tables and storage systems, but he also designed agricultural machinery, boats and trains.

Alongside his design work, Wim Rietveld also lectured at the Royal Academy and the Technical University in Delft.
