Hay About a Chair collection:
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, and it is equally perfect for private and public settings. The About series is a true pragmatist, able to blend in or stand out, depending on the task it is assigned. Dramatize the silhouette with heavier upholstery, or opt for more subtle materials and colors. The many colour, upholstery and frame options are a particularly strong feature that allows you to tweak the design without compromising the basic concept.
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 colors make About a Chair an ultra-flexible and versatile chair that celebrates individuality.
