With its gently curved open shell and symmetrical solid base, the About A Chair AAC 12 design offers a refreshingly pared-back expression 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 base is available in four different finishes and the post-consumer recycled plastic shell is offered in a wide palette of contemporary colours, providing a multitude of design combinations that give this series versatility in a wide range of home, corporate and public contexts. The optional AAC seat pads provide extra comfort. It is also available with a fully upholstered seat.

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 footstool and a sofa. All are equally suitable for private and public settings.

Materials/Construction

Shell - Injection moulded solid-coloured polypropylene shell without armrest. 100% post-consumer recycled PP.

Base - Moulded plywood base. Inner plywood in beech, top veneer in water-based (eco-friendly) lacquered oak, black lacquered oak, lacquered walnut or soaped oak.

Glider - Plastic. Suitable for all floorings that are not too sensitive.

The shells consist of 100% recycled post-consumer plastic from household machines. The use of recycled material means that colours vary slightly from batch to batch. Marks and irregularities on the surface are a natural part of the material and may occur.

Among HAY's ongoing initiatives to reduce their ecological footprint, is the introduction of water-based lacquer on a selection of their wooden furniture. The environmental benefits are clear – the new lacquer does not contain any harmful substances and is used on FSC wood sourced from sustainable forests. The lacquer fulfils all the EU Ecolabel requirements.
