About A AAC 121 SOFT BLACK POWDER COATED ALUMINIUM LINARA 415

645 EUR

The AAC 121 Soft counterbalances the more formal expression of the aluminium swivel base with the softness and warmth of the quilted shell. Retaining the same high backrest and generous seat that characterises the series, this design features a functional base with legs that fan out from the centre. The base is available in polished or powder-coated aluminium, and the quilted shell is offered in a variety of upholstery options, providing a multitude of design combinations that give this series versatility in a wide range of corporate, public, and private contexts.

About A

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 has an open frame construction in bent steel that brings added lightness to the intuitive design. The shell is round and upright at the same time and combines a high degree of seating comfort with an inviting expression. The open frame is available in stainless steel as well as a black or white powder-coating, which lets you design contrast-rich colour combinations of frame and seat. The many possible combinations of frame, shell and colours make About a Chair an ultra-flexible and versatile chair that celebrates individuality.

About A / 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.
