HAY Introduces The New Eco Collection
Hay introduces a new eco-friendly addition to the About A family, designed by Hee Welling & HAY. The About A Eco Collection emphasizes sustainability while retaining the fundamental aesthetic and versatility of the About A series.
About A Eco is certified with the EU Ecolabel, which signifies that 30% of the PP material used is recycled waste material from our own About A production lines, while the wooden base is available in FSC-certified oak with a water-based lacquer.
Available in a variety of interchangeable frames and shells, the AAC ECO 12, 22 and AAS ECO 32 models use recycled plastic (PP) for the gently curved shell, while the wooden base is available in solid FSC-certified oak with a water-based lacquer. All chairs and stools in the ECO series are EU Ecolabelled as a sign of environmental commitment.
Available in all HAY Stores beginning on June 1, 2020, every product in the About A Eco Collection can be fully disassembled and recycled.
About the 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.
