Hay’s Halftime chair comprises a strong steel frame and a moulded plywood seat that has been attached to the frame with aluminium rivets. Halftime was designed by the Danish architectural firm COBE for the adidas Halftime building located in Bavaria, Germany. The designers wanted to create an extremely durable and multifunctional chair that would last from generation to generation. The stackable, timeless and functional Halftime is well suited for various uses from dining rooms at homes to restaurants, offices and conference spaces.
In 2021, Hay renewed the surface treatments of its wood furniture by replacing the 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.
