Simple and good: About a Chair AAC12 / AAC 12 Chair Hay
The designer of About A Chair had a vision that motivated him: He wanted to develop a chair of concise simplicity. The ideas and impressions merged and the result was the About A Chair AAC12 - a work of art of simplicity.
The About A Chair chair should function both as a piece of utility furniture and as a design object. The basic idea was that the AAC12 chair should cut a good figure at the dining table, at the conference table, in the canteen as well as in the office or in one's own four walls and fulfil its respective purpose. And it does so with flying colours. It is an all-round talent and can really be used anywhere.
About A Chair Collection
Conscious and simple - the chairs from the About A Chair Collection by Hay follow simple and plain lines, so that they can be easily combined with other furnishing objects. They complement different styles excellently and can therefore also be used perfectly in the contract sector. Designer Hee Welling conceived the series with the aim of making the chairs usable in restaurants, canteens, in the office or at the dining table at home. Their simple appearance ensures a special multifunctionality and combinability.
The collection includes AAC in different variations - wooden and metal frames and non-upholstered and upholstered seat shells. Each individual variant is a testimony to a restrained elegance that discreetly enhances any room.
Designer Hee Welling
The Danish designer Hee Welling attended the University of Art and Design in Helsinki and graduated with a Master's degree in furniture design from the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts. In 2003, he founded his own studio in Copenhagen and has since designed furniture, interiors, lighting and industrial designs. Welling has received various awards, including the BoBedre Design Award (Denmark) and the Good Design Award (USA). His designs have been used in international institutions such as the Oslo Opera House, the Australian Parliament and Amazon's headquarters.
As the son of a carpenter, he has a great fascination for production techniques and materials. It is therefore not surprising that his credo is to develop technically sophisticated products that are nevertheless accessible to the masses.
