About A Chair AAC23 Soft by Hay combines a sleek oak frame with a plush padded seat. The soft quilted shell makes the chair super comfy and gives it a cosy, relaxed look.
The About A Soft chairs are part of Hay’s About A collection, created in close collaboration with designer Hee Welling, featuring chairs with outstanding simplicity and combinability. With the About A collection, Welling wanted to reach a new level in the combination of shape, function, comfort, detail, and aesthetics. The idea was to develop a chair that would work equally well around a dining table and a conference table, as well as in a restaurant, café or office. Due to their simple and straightforward design, the chairs can be combined with many 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.
