A true pragmatist, able to blend in or stand out.Offering a slightly more formal flavour than the rest of the series, About A Chair AAC 18 features slim, elegant legs and armrests that frame the seat shell. The chair’s upright, slightly rounded seat offers excellent comfort, while the open front conveys a welcoming expression. Its refined silhouette makes it a perfect conference chair, but is also suitable for dining tables or home offices. The legs are available in chrome and powder coated finishes, while the shell comes in diverse colour and upholstery options, allowing a multitude of design combinations that make this series so versatile.
‘Hee has a great sense of proportions, form and aesthetic, and he remains punctual and reliable throughout the process. Hee designs things that are a pleasure to look at – like the About a-series, which has gradually expanded to include some thirty different models, in clear testimony to the strong qualities at the heart of the product.’ Rolf Hay.´ Rolf Hay
As a child, Hee Welling spent endless hours in his dad’s cabinetmaker’s workshop, building models, exploring technical possibilities and decoding the potentials of materials. His work is still firmly rooted in the Scandinavian design tradition that defined his father’s profession, but he has added an industrial edge that embraces modern possibilities. Over the years, Hee’s work with the furniture models inspired him to apply to the furniture department of the design school; once enrolled, he gradually realised that it was the industrial approach that ultimately held his passion.
The combination of technological possibilities and simple, functional design is Hee Welling’s drive and the hallmark that he has refined over the past ten years. ‘I’m deeply fascinated with production techniques, machinery and materials and with creating products that reach a wide audience.’
