Featuring the same compact body as other designs in the series, this swivel version of the About A Lounge Chair has a light metal frame.
Available in high- and low-back versions, the high-backed version of About A Lounge Chair has a more formal expression, while the low-backed shell has a lighter feel, which is emphasised by the low swivel base. Both versions feature the same 4-leg star swivel base. The large choice of upholstery options and base finishes make it suitable for a wide range of public and private contexts. Fixed seat cushion mounted with Velcro.
‘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.’
