The Changing World of Work
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.
This slightly more formal version of About a Chair features elegant legs and armrests that frame the seat shell for a secure and comfortable feel. The chair’s upright and organic posture offers good lumbar support, while the open front invites you in. In this version, About a Chair is a perfect conference chair, but it has retained a stylish sense of homeliness that makes it fit right in around a dinner table or in a work-at-home office.
