About Hay

Established in 2002, the young Scandinavian manufacturer Hay has set itself the aim of returning the Danish furniture design to the innovative standards of the 1950s and 1960s which helped establish the term "Danish design" as a by-word for international quality: albeit in a contemporary context. The inaugural Hay collection was premièred in context of the 2003 IMM Cologne trade fair and garnered universal praise for its combination of functional and beautiful design with creative design and innovative technology. Aside from the desire to create honest and sensible designs Hay also strive to produce furniture which is affordable: high-quality designs should not to be the exclusive preserve of the well-heeled, but also be affordable to a younger public. In the tension between fundamental architectural insights and the dynamics of fashion Hay have developed projects in collaboration with designers such as Hee Welling and Stefan Diez which have regularly surprised the industry with their fresh, unpretentious design.

About a Chair

The Hay About A Chair Collection by Copenhagen native Hee Welling was developed for Hay in 2010, yet transmits and unmistakable classic aura. The chair series About a Chair includes a variety of interpretations of the familiar shell chair, from a simple all-purpose chair with plastic seat shell to the padded lounge chair, and combines linear design with comfort and adaptability. Different seat forms, frames, colours and upholstery enable numerous combinations and make the About A Chair collection an inspiring family of chairs and seats for all situations, private and public.

Hay designs are stylish, functional and reduced.

Copenhague Collection

Hays outstanding importance for contemporary design in Scandinavia is perfectly demonstrated by projects such as the Copenhague Collection by the French design duo Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec, a collection of tables and chairs. The Copenhague Collection was created in 2012 in context of a contract for furniture for a new Copenhagen University building. The collection, reduced and practical but at the same time inviting and unconventional, embodies with its use of high-quality materials the philosophy of Hay: the combination of simple beauty, with a hint of pragmatism and a resolute implementation of perfect, everyday furniture.

In 2016 the products of the Wrong for Hay label were integrated into the mother label Hay.

...At the risk of overusing the phrase "a concept that grows on us the more XXXX adds to it" and so reducing a genuine sign of respect to irrelevant dribble: Stefan Diez's New Order system for HAY is a concept that grows on us the more Stefan Diez adds to it... We're absolutely certain HAY did have other new products in Cologne...
