The About A Chair 100 series is a continuation of the long-term collaboration between HAY and designer Hee Welling. Whilst retaining the fundamental idea shared by the AAC family, the 100 series is actually very different to its predecessors.
AAC 100 was developed to accommodate the changing landscape of our work environment, and to meet a growing need for greater comfort in the workspace, where there is a visible shift from traditional desk seating to welcoming and flexible seating solutions.
“We took the regular armchair and a lounge chair and merged it together. We took all the best references from both and actually combined it. So that means we have a higher back, a little more width – and of course a lot more comfort.
It looks very human. It looks inviting. It looks like it fits you.”
