The About a Chair chairs have consciously been kept simple and they can therefore be combined with all the other furniture pieces without any problems. According to designer Hee Welling’s imagination, the About a Chair chairs should be used in restaurants as well as in cantinas, offices, at homely dining tables or at conference tables. This is how the idea of simplicity became a guarantor for multifunctionality and combinability.
About a Chair is a series not only combinable with other furniture, but also with each other, since all the seats and frames are available in different variants. Thereby perfection and aesthetics of design remain saved and will never act as if by chance or unplanned.
The seat with armrests of the About a Chair AAC 21 consists of polypropylene and it is slightly upholstered with an Eco-Tex-Standard foam filling. Different qualities and colours by Kvadrat are possible as coatings. The rotatable frame consists of powder-coated (white or black) aluminium.
Moreover the About a Chair by Hay isn’t only available with upholstered seats, but also with further frames, such as the AAC 23 with a wooden base and upholstered seat or as AAC 12 with wooden base and seat without armrests. We will gladly advise you for personal configurations.
