About an Ottoman is reinterpreted late modernism, and like the rest of the About series it is able to blend into a relevant present or future, depending on your choice of upholstery, colours and materials.
About an Ottoman is designed as a companion for both versions of About a Lounge Chair, but the footstool has such a strong visual expression that it can easily stand alone as an extra seat.
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.
