Vierbeiner mit Schale

The About series is HAY’s most versatile furniture series. It began with a chair and blossomed into a series with virtually unlimited potential. With the About series, Hee Welling has proven that a single strong idea can hold a wealth of development options. Today, the series includes dining and conference chairs, office chairs, bar stools, lounge chairs, tables, a foot stool and, as the latest addition, a sofa, and it is equally perfect for private and public settings. The About series is a true pragmatist, able to blend in or stand out, depending on the task it is assigned. Dramatize the silhouette with heavier upholstery, or opt for more subtle materials and colours. The many colour, upholstery and frame options are a particularly strong feature that allows you to tweak the design without compromising the basic concept.
About a Chair as an office chair has a rounded shell that adds executive weight and brings a warm and welcoming feel to an otherwise rather cool and technical genre – perhaps because the castors lend the industrial steel frame a narrative character?
About a Chair is perfect for official settings and an obvious choice for both large-scale corporate contexts and work-at-home offices – or maybe as a dining chair? Like the other versions, this version too is available with three upholstery options: full upholstery of the whole shell, upholstery on the front of the rounded shell or a seat cushion. All three versions allow you to vary the expression with relatively simple variations in upholstery, which of course owes a great deal to fabric textures and colours.
