Friso Kramer was born in Amsterdam in 1922. After graduating in Interior Design from the Institute of Applied Arts in Amsterdam, he worked as a designer from 1948-1963 at De Cirkel, a manufacturer of steel furniture that had become part of the Ahrend group in 1939. He later became the Art Director of the Ahrend Group, a post he held from 1971-1983. Notable designs include his two concrete benches with low and high backs designed for public spaces, the Revolt Chair in 1953, and the Result Chair he co-designed with Wim Rietveld in 1958. Together with Ahrend, HAY has reproduced the Result Chair and Revolt Chair.
