Description

About A Chair AAC22 by HAY combines a sleek walnut frame with a streamlined polypropylene shell. A result of close collaboration between designer Hee Welling and HAY, About A Chair is a collection of outstanding simplicity and combinability.

With the About A Chair collection, Welling wanted to reach a new level in the combination of shape, function, comfort, detail, and esthetic. The idea behind the collection was to develop a chair that works well around the dining table, around a conference table, as well as in a restaurant, cafeteria or at the office. Due to their simple and plain design, the chairs can be combined with various types of furniture and interiors.

In 2021, HAY renewed the surface treatments of its wood furniture by replacing their paints and lacquers with more environmentally friendly, water-based alternatives. Please note that due to this, natural wood furniture now comes with only one lacquer option instead of the previous two: the new water-based lacquer is glossier than the matte lacquer previously used, but slightly more matte than HAY’s previous clear lacquer.

Hee Welling

Hee Welling is a Danish designer who graduated as a designer from the Danish Design School in Copenhagen in 2003, specialising in product and furniture design. Hee Welling’s designs are deeply rooted in the Scandinavian design tradition, which is evident in his simple, functional and refined designs. Form and function are the two important guidelines in his works.

Immediately after graduation he established Hee Welling Design Studio in Copenhagen. Besides working in his own studio, Hee Welling also teaches international students at the Danish Design School. Hee Welling’s work has been exhibited at fairs in Cologne, London, New York, Milan, Singapore, Stockholm and Tokyo. Hee Welling’s most famous design is the Hee chair, available in different versions – Hee dining chair, Hee lounge chair and Hee bar chair – and colours. The idea for the Hee chairs derives from an ambition to make an eco-friendly chair where the materials are easily recyclable. 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 chair is made from 11 mm metal wire and the form refers to a sketch - a pencil drawing in three dimensions. The Hee chair is, among other places, being used in the new Oslo Opera and at the Australian Parliament. The chair is stackable and suitable for outdoor use as well.
