Pieces of Nordic Happiness

HAY | Dining chairs

HAY is a Danish design company founded in 2002 and characterized by innovativeness, bold designs and high quality industrial manufacturing. Easily accessible to large audiences, HAY's furniture, lighting and interior products have become iconic pieces of modern Scandinavian design.

Behind HAY's ingenious and surprising designs lies an interesting way of thinking: the designers are given a full creative freedom to move forward the things that they like, as long as they follow HAY's main principles: architectonic, design and technological ambitions and sustainability. HAY collaborates with both well-known and fresh names of modern design. Some of its best known designers include Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec and Hee Welling, whose designs include the popular chair collections About A Chair and Hee.

Dining chairs from Scandinavia and beyond

Dining chairs are among the most important chairs in your house. Dining room chairs invite the family to gather together during breakfasts, dinners and suppers, and in most homes, dining chairs are in active use also outside the meals. The design of a dining table chair requires exceptional durability, comfortability and adaptability, and that's a good reason to invest in high-quality, timeless design. Well-designed dining chairs provide a straight yet comfortable seating posture, and their dimensions have been designed to fit people of various ages and sizes. In public spaces, for example in restaurant use, stackability of the chair is a definite plus – a pile of stacked chairs is easy to store in a small space.

The best dining chairs are a balanced combination of functional qualities and intriguing aesthetics – they have been designed to stand the test of time, both with their structure and appearance. The most common materials of Scandinavian dining chairs include wood, metal, plastic, rattan and different combinations of these. The seat might be upholstered in fabric, leather or velvet, or woven from linen webbing. Colourful dining chairs are a great way to spice up the decor of the dining area or neutral-toned dining table, and, respectively, strong colours of the interior can be balanced with black, white or grey dining chairs. Feel free to use your imagination – you can mix together chairs in different tones, or why not even several types of chairs.

Finnish cornerstones of our chair collection include the chairs designed by Alvar Aalto for Artek, as well as Ilmari Tapiovaara's iconic chairs.
