Product description

The swivel base version of About a Lounge Chair has the same compact, embracing body as well as an elegant metal frame on tip-toes that gives the chair a 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 majestic grace, 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 even rounder and more welcoming. The high-backed shell has a lighter feel, and in this low swivel version that effect is fully expressed.

The high and low-backed versions of About a Lounge Chair have a swivel base and offer the same great seating comfort, a strong signature expression and perfectly balanced proportions. Both versions of About a Lounge Chair may at first glance appear targeted at the contract market, but as a typology, they would still fit right into most private homes. About a Lounge Chair has a sculptural appearance in the room with its beautiful back, where the stitching helps define graphic lines that are subtle or striking, depending on your choice of upholstery.

Product family


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.
