Key facts

Product description

About a Chair has an open frame construction in bent steel that brings added lightness to the intuitive design. The shell is round and upright at the same time and combines a high degree of seating comfort with an inviting expression. The open frame is available in stainless steel as well as a black or white powder-coating, which lets you design contrast-rich colour combinations of frame and seat. The many possible combinations of frame, shell and colours make About a Chair an ultra-flexible and widely useful chair that celebrates individuality.

Product family


The About series is HAY’s most versatile furniture series. It began with a chair and blossomed into a series with virtually unlimited potential. With the About series, Hee Welling has proven that a single strong idea can hold a wealth of development options. Today, the series includes dining and conference chairs, office chairs, bar stools, lounge chairs, tables, a foot stool and, as the latest addition, a sofa.

The About series is a true pragmatist, able to blend in or stand out, depending on the task it is assigned. Dramatize the curvy silhouette with heavier upholstery or opt for a more discreet style in materials and colours. The many colour, upholstery and frame options are one of the series’ major strengths and allow you to tweak the design without compromising the basic concept. That is Hee Welling’s potent approach in this series, which is perhaps HAY’s most unpredictable, and which appeals to a wide audience of all ages and is equally appropriate for private and professional contexts.

About a Chair is an intuitive take on the concept of a chair. The organic posture provides good lumbar support, while the open shell invites you to take a seat. About a Chair comes in a dyed plastic version as well as a version with either.
