About A Chair AAC50 / AAC51 with gaslift

12 to 14 Weeks


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 foot stool and, as the latest addition, a sofa, and it is equally perfect for private and public settings. The About series is a true pragmatist, able to blend in or stand out, depending on the task it is assigned. Dramatize the silhouette with heavier upholstery, or opt for more subtle materials and colours. The many colour, upholstery and frame options are a particularly strong feature that allows you to tweak the design without compromising the basic concept.


This version of About a Chair is height-adjustable, as the five-legged base is equipped with a semi-automatic gas lift. The new aluminium frame has castors, as the modern office chair that it is, and the adjustable seat height varies from 42 to 56 cm. About a Chair with gas lift is available with the original, open seat or a rounded shell, just like the other About a Chair variants.
