About a Chair is a chair collection by Hay with a striking simplicity in its design. For the designer Hee Welling, they represent a new level in the combination of form, function, comfort, detail and aesthetics.
The chairs are deliberately kept plain and simple and can easily be combined with other furniture. They also integrate perfectly into different environments and architectural styles, which is why the chairs were predestined for both private and commercial use.
According to the vision of the designer Hee Welling, the About a Chair-chairs should be as suited for the home as they would be for a restaurant, a cafeteria, an office or a conference room. In this context, the simplicity of it guarantees the multi-function design and their ability to be combined.
The About a Chair AAC 22 consists of armrests and a wooden frame. The upholstered seat is made from thoroughly dyed polypropylene, the frame out of beech wood with soaped oak or stained ash veneer. A seat cushion is optionally available.
About a Chair by Hay is also combinable with other seats and frames. For instance, the AAC 20 is available with a swivel aluminium base and the AAC 23 with upholstery. The seats and bases of the AAC series make up numerous combinations that will never seem unintentional or random. We will gladly advise you on your individual combination.Also in our blog:
