Product description

About a Chair as an office chair clearly means business. The rounded shell adds executive weight to the chair – suggesting that it takes a person of a certain potential to claim this seat. The office chair version manages to bring a warm and welcoming feel to an otherwise rather cool and technical genre – perhaps because the castors lend the elegant industrial steel frame a narrative charm? About a Chair is perfect for official settings and an obvious choice for both large-scale corporate contexts and work-at-home offices – or maybe as a dining chair? That could rewrite the concept of ‘meals on wheels’!

Like the other versions, this version too is available with three upholstery options: full upholstery of the whole shell, upholstery on the front of the rounded shell or a seat cushion. All three versions create a wow-effect when you see how much the expression changes with the relatively simple variations in upholstery, which of course owes a great deal to fabric textures and colours.

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.
