With the objective of recreating HAY’s iconic About A Chair and About A Stool series from a more sustainable perspective, the About A ECO series focuses on using environmentally friendly materials whilst retaining the fundamental aesthetic of the
About A Collection.

Available in a variety of interchangeable frames and shells, the AAC ECO 12, 22 and 32 models use recycled plastic (PP) for the gently curved shell, while the wooden base is available in solid FSC-certified oak with a  water-based lacquer.

All chairs and stools in the ECO series are EU Ecolabelled as a sign of environmental commitment.


The About A Eco series has been certified with the EU Ecolabel, which signifies that 30% of the PP material used is recycled.

It utilizes waste material from Hay's own About A Collection production lines, rather than disposing of the extra material, all while  aintaining the aesthetic and expression of the About A collection.

It also uses water-based lacquers for the frames, and FSC-certified wood. All AA Eco products can be disassembled and recycled.
