The media company Condé Nast Germany has moved to the Richard Meier Building in Munich after an extensive redesign.
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.
Here, About a Chair is the perfect office chair and brings a warm and welcoming feel to an otherwise rather cool and technical genre. The chair uses the same simple and familiar shell, while the elegant steel frame acquires a narrative charm when it is combined with the spherical castors. This version of 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 a dining chair?
