AAC 17

Concept

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.
