The idea for Hee came up of the effort, to design an eco-friendly chair and armchair, whose material is easy to recycle. To create a piece of furniture out of one material, they avoid micro-pollutant transport ways between different production places, and it makes the process of recycling more easy.
The main thought was to take an archetypal chair as model and to perfection it in every single detail and to boost it in a higher class and also to make it simpler and make the functionality better. A clear, plain piece of furniture was supposed to be created which should fit in many places - modern, but not too time-specific.
Nothing is too much on this bar stool, no decorations. No part could be taken off, without loosing the function. From the outside it seems playful, but the design doesn't affect its function. Throw-away mentality and environmental awareness don't fit together.
To find the balance was also important while the construction - to combine functionality and aesthetic on high level, the exact wire strength had to be chosen. The Hee-chairs, the Lounge Chair and also the bar stool are made of a 11 mm strong metal wire and in their shape they remind on a sketch, a three-dimensional pencil- drawing.
Hee is available in the engrossment as a club armchair, as dining chair or as bar stool. It can be looked at in the new Oslo Opera House and in the Australian parliament. The stackable furnitures are galvanised and powder coated. That's why they can be used in every kind of weather and are a good outside furniture, too.
Hay Hee is also available in blue, green and yellow. A matching cushion is also available.
