As wide as a summer Sunday in the garden; as light as a Nordic summer night.
With its wide, welcoming seat and low height, Hee Lounge is definitely the most laid-back model in the Hee series. Although the elemental design is manifested here in more relaxed proportions, it still retains the same light, understated aesthetics and functional properties as the rest of the family. Stackable and weather-proof, the Hee Lounge Chair can be used in outdoor surroundings, as well as inside restaurants, bars and in a home environment.
‘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.’
