[Free translation] Chair noun [C] (FURNITURE) a seat for one person that has a back, usually four legs, and sometimes two arms. Is what’s written in the Cambridge Dictionary. But the writer of the definition didn’t know the About a Chair AAC 22 by HAY, since my new favourite piece is far more than a piece of furniture to sit on. I have been searching for a chair with a white seat and bright wooden legs for my working desk for a long time. It should suit my desk, where I can be creative, where I work with pictures and write blog-texts. As soon as I saw the big parcel of Connox in our corridor and unwrapped the chair, I had the first ideas of how many ways there are to make use of Hay’s About a Chair. Motives emerged in my head and my photo-heard was beating faster immediately! I am astonished of how many possibilities there are to emphasize a chair. It is incredibly wonderful: A real decoration and photo-talent. Let me present some of my ideas in here. I am sure you are having more ideas still!
The comfortable seat is perfectly suitable for children and my model of that day felt obviously well.
Why should a chair be only used to sit on it? Apart from the explanation of the Cambridge Dictionary: I believe in the power of chairs used as decoration tables!
When I was photographing the kid, I had the idea of using the chair to portrait adults. As soon as that, the set was changed: A different background will make the chair look very different.
Why should such a oretty chair remain inside? The decoration is pretty, guests will have a comfortable chair and the balcony is a good method of showing what you’re proud of.
The chair is perfect to be used for product photography. Its white seat is responsible for an effect, which reminds us of a whiteBox. Especially its laterals are reflected by the daylight. Shadows only emerge minimally and a studio lamp isn’t necessary – at good available light.
Back to my initial idea. A chair for my office! The HAY About A Chair looks gorgeous in an office.
