AAC ECO 12

AAC ECO 12

 

With the objective of recreating HAY's iconic AAC chair from a more sustainable perspective, the About A Chair AAC 12 ECO uses recycled plastic (PP) to form the gently curved, open shell and symmetrical solid base that is consistent with the rest of the series. The lack of armrests ensures a clean, clutter-free silhouette, whilst the shaped back provides optimal comfort. The wooden frame with elegant, rounded legs conveys warmth and character, and ensures greater stability and a longer lifetime. The recycled shell is available in eco black and the base is available in solid FSC-certified oak with a water-based lacquer. The chair is EU Ecolabelled as a sign of environmental commitment, along with the other models in the ECO series – the AAC 22 ECO and AAS 32 in low and high versions.

AAC ECO PRESENTATION

AAC ECO 12 / Designer

Hee Welling is a Danish furniture designer who founded his own studio in Copenhagen in 2003. Welling has received a number of design awards, including the Bo Bedre Award (Denmark), Good Design Award (USA) and has been nominated as the Danish designer of the year in both 2013 and 2014. Welling is the son of a cabinetmaker, and his fascination with production techniques, materials and machinery was fired as a child. He went on to study at The University of Art and Design in Helsinki, and received his master’s degree in furniture design from The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts (where he is also now a design tutor). His design ethos is centred around the idea of creating technically accomplished products that can reach a wide audience. His work is characterised by a great sense of proportion and quietly elegant looks. For HAY, Welling has designed the About A series and the Hee Chair, Lounge Chair and Bar Stool.
