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.
The About A Table shares the general versatility and design language as the rest of the family. The table features the same powder coated frame as many of the chairs in the series, and the organic curves and raised feet convey a similar light expression. The tables are available with round or rectangular tabletops, with the round tabletop resting on a centred frame, while the rectangular version has its legs positioned at both ends and has a cross-bar construction. About A Table is available in two heights and a wide range of dimensions, enabling you to create a unique solution to match your needs.
