The swivel base version of About a Lounge Chair has the same compact body, but the light metal frame gives the chair a more contemporary expression, as if the rounded, curvy and warm is energised when it is combined with the cold, industrial frame. The high-backed version of About a Lounge Chair has a more formal expression, although the visual point of gravity appears to have shifted slightly. The body of the chair dominates the design without seeming out of proportion – in fact, the effect is rather the opposite: It makes About a Lounge Chair seem more welcoming. The high-backed shell has a lighter feel, which is emphasised by the low swivel base. The high and low-backed versions of About a Lounge Chair have a swivel base and offer the same great seating comfort, strong signature expression and perfectly balanced proportions. Both versions of About a Lounge Chair are perfect for the contract market, but as a typology, they fit right into most private homes. About a Lounge Chair has a sculptural appearance, and the stitching on the back adds a subtle or striking effect, depending on your choice of upholstery.

The idea behind the About A Chair-collection has been to develop a chair with conspicuous simplicity. The ambition has been to combine form, function, comfort, detail and aesthetics.
About A Lounge Chair has clear references to the rest of the family. The low lounge chair is open and inviting to dialog whilst the high lounge chair has the function of a comfortable nest. About A Chair is the product of close collaboration between designer Hee Welling and HAY aspiring to create a family of chairs so versatile that there can be one suitable for any location or home – private or public – without compromising quality and perfection.
