The idea for the Hee chairs derives from an ambition to make an eco-friendly chair where the materials are easily recyclable. Creating a chair from one single material has the environmental advantages of saving transportation between different production sites and simplifying the recycling of materials. The philosophy was taking an archetypical chair – and perfecting it in every single detail by lifting the design up a level, simplifying it and improving the usability. The starting point was to make a cool and basic chair that would fit most locations – modern but not so typical of the period, that it does not have a long life. There is nothing superfluous or ornamented about the chair and nothing can be removed without losing the function. The chair has a playful expression but does not let the design compromise its purpose. The mentality of using-and-throwing-away is not in harmony with the environmental ambition. Balancing the construction was essential – as was combining aesthetics and function by finding exactly the right thickness of the metal wire. The chair is made from 11 mm metal wire and the form refers to a sketch - a pencil drawing in three dimensions. The Hee chair comes as a lounge chair, a dining chair and a barstool. It is, among other places being used in the new Oslo Opera and the Australian parliament. The chair is stackable and electroplated prior to the powder coating, and they withstand weather throughout the year making it suitable for an outdoor set up.

”Fast delivery. Ordered a hammock for my mothers birthday to be delivered at her adress. It’s in a somewhat rural area, but it was delivered at her door regardless. Great service.”
”I’m crazy for the Finnish Design Shop, and all that I’ve bought from them. And when questions arose (regarding a bookshelf that needed clever assembly), their representatives in Finland were so helpful and thoughtful.”
”My Pieces of Nordic Happiness exceeded my expectations in every way. From a great website to beautiful design to meticulous packaging, you have never left my Happiness in Pieces! Customer Service is responsive, pleasant and helpful - the 5th star in my rating.”
”I ordered a HAY side table that was on back order everywhere else. It was a few hundred crowns more at Finnish Design Shop, but shipped the next day and was delivered to my door two days later, which I think was worth the extra cost. It came well-packaged, protected and the item is in perfect condition. I’m happy and would shop here again.”
”First time shopping with Finnish Design Shop and I had a real easy, smooth experience. I had one return item and that was handled effortlessly.”
”We purchased a Hay Snowden Kettle from the Finnish Design Shop - unfortunately there was a fault with the Kettle but this was professionally and quickly dealt with by the Olli on the After Sales team, so we can recommend them for their great customer service and after-sales experience.”
