home: favourite thing [ chair ]
We have a bit of an obsession with chairs, and always looking out for new designs or classic reproductions. We think the Hee Chair from HAY is one of those chairs that just oozes style packaged within a very simple but clever design. Perfect for indoor and outdoor use.
‘The philosophy behind the Hee Chair was to take an archetypal chair and perfect it down to the last detail while cutting the expression to the minimum. The goal was to create a contemporary chair that would fit into a wide range of contexts. The attempt was successful, and the Hee series is a pragmatic and easily decoded chair series. Like a line drawing, it wraps metre after metre of metal wire into neat, straight lines in three versions: bar stool, lounge chair and dining chair.
The metal wire is electro-galvanized before it is lacquered, which makes it rust-resistant and perfect for outdoor use. The chairs can be linked together in rows for conference use, and the new colour scheme keeps the Hee chairs updated.’
