The About series 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, etc.
The About A Lounge Sofa has been designed to adapt to both private and public spaces thanks to a rich palette of fabrics from Kvadrat and leathers from Ca-Mo. The many colours and the choice of the base finish generates thousands of possibilities.
Base solid oak – soaped, black stained or clear lacquered
Materials moulded olyurethane foam, fabric or leather upholstery
Dimensions 150 x 73 x H81 – seat height 40 cm
Hee Welling is a Danish furniture designer who founded his own studio in Copenhagen in 2003. Welling has received a number of design awards, including the Bo Bedre Award (Denmark), Good Design Award (USA) and has been nominated as the Danish designer of the year in both 2013 and 2014.
Welling is the son of a cabinetmaker, and his fascination with production techniques, materials and machinery was fired as a child. He went on to study at The University of Art and Design in Helsinki, and received his master’s degree in furniture design from The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts (where he is also now a design tutor).
His design ethos is centered around the idea of creating technically accomplished products that can reach a wide audience. His work is characterized by a great sense of proportion and quietly elegant looks.
