After years of redevelopment, with the objective of recreating HAY's iconic About A Collection from a more sustainable perspective, the About A AA-ECO range is now made from 100% post-consumer recycled plastic (a material derived from household waste, like televisions and washing machines).
The About A Chair AAC22 design exudes the functional simplicity that is characteristic of this entire series. The solid shell comprises a curved back with armrests in polypropylene, providing excellent comfort and a soft, unified silhouette, while the four-legged wooden base adds a timeless, classic expression, ensuring greater stability and a longer lifetime.
The extensive range of colours, upholstery options and wood choices for the frame and legs offer the opportunity to create almost infinite design combinations.

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.
