About A Chair AAC22 by Hay combines a sleek oak 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 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 which 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 water-based alternatives. Please note that this chair is an older, PU lacquered version that is no longer in production. Due to the update, 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.
