With its gently curved open upholstered shell and symmetrical solid base, the About A Chair AAC 13 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. With a fully upholstered shell, this chair provides day-long comfort to its user.

The base is available in four different finishes and the shell is offered in multiple upholstery options. The extensive range of choices offers the opportunity to create almost infinite design combinations for use in a wide range of corporate, public and private contexts. It is also available without an 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.

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.
