About a Chair by Hay is a chair collection with striking simplicity in design. With it, the designer Hee Welling has reached a new level in the combination of form, function, comfort, detail and aesthetics.
The chairs from About a Chair are deliberately kept simple and simple and can therefore be easily and simply combined with other furniture. Due to their simplicity, they fit perfectly into a wide variety of environments and architectural styles, which is why the chairs are also ideal for contract use.
According to designer Hee Welling, the About a Chair should feel at home in the restaurant or in the canteen as well as in the office, at the dining table or at the conference table. In this context, the idea of simplicity became a guarantee for multifunctionality and combinability.
The seat shell with armrests of the About A Chair Low AAC 43 is made of polypropylene and is lightly upholstered with a foam in accordance with the Oeko-Tex standard. Different qualities of Kvadrat fabrics are possible as upholstery fabrics. The frame is made of beech plywood with oak veneer or black stained veneer in ash and the Low version has a lower seat height (38 cm) than the normal AAC variants (seat height 46 cm).
In addition, About A Chair by Hay also available with other seat shells and bases, e.g. as the AAC 42 with an upholstered seat shell in the Low version or as an upholstered AAC 23 with a standard seat height of 46 cm: the seat shells and base frames from the AAC series result in numerous combinations that never appear random or unwanted. We would be happy to advise you on personal configurations.
