About a Stool is perfect as, well, a bar stool but also for informal meetings or meals.
No furniture series is complete without a bar stool. About a Stool is perfect as, well, a bar stool but also for informal meetings or meals. It has the same capacity for transformation as the other members of the family and ranges from a minimalist and simple plastic stool to a sensuous upholstered version with a weightier presence.
Here, About a Stool stands on Nordic legs in soap-finished or lacquered oak or ash wood stained black, an option that gives the bar stool optical weight and feet that are planted firmly on the ground.
Seat Height is 64cm (Low) and 74cm (High)
Hee Welling & HAY
‘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.’
