Revolt Chair


Brand : Hay

Designer : Friso Kramer


Hay’s Revolt chair is a re-release of a seat designed by Friso Kramer for Ahrend in the 1950s. Over the years, the Revolt chair has become one of Kramer’s best-known works, and it is an excellent example of the designer’s minimalist style.
The gist of the Revolt chair lies in its metal frame, which, a bit unusually, is not made of a metal tube but of a thin, angled steel plate. The unique construction of the frame guarantees not only a distinctive appearance, but also an ergonomic and comfortable sitting position – the backrest tilts slightly when you sit on the chair. In Hay’s re-launched version, the seat and backrest are made of a mix of virgin and recycled ABS plastic. Due to its simple and versatile design, the Revolt chair is just as at home around a dining table as it is in an office or meeting room.

Friso Kramer (1922-2019) was one of the essential names of modern Dutch design. A son of the famous architect Piet Kramer, Friso studied architecture in Amsterdam and focused later on industrial design. Since 1948, Kramer worked as a designer for the steel furniture manufacturer De Cirkel, and in the 1950s he was an active member in the Stitching Goed Wonen (Good Living Association), which aimed at postwar reconstruction and improving quality of life by functional design.


HAY was founded in 2002. This marked the beginnings of the international ambition that HAY has pursued over the past decade: creating durable quality furniture at affordable prices to allow as many people as possible to enjoy excellent design. HAY looks back with pride at the age of Danish Modern, where quality, craftsmanship and humanistic design put Denmark on the global map, and they look with excitement to the future as they explore the current possibilities inherent in new technologies, new materials and new ways of living with furniture. At the heart of everything that HAY does is the notion that contemporary design should spring from a good idea, innovative technology and quality materials in combination with joyful, straightforward and uncomplicated aesthetics.
