HAY was established in 2002 and their furniture collection was launched at IMM Cologne in 2003. HAY’s ambition is to encourage Danish furniture design’s return to the innovative greatness of the 1950’s and 1960’s but in a contemporary context.
HAY strives to make good design at affordable prices. They are committed to nurturing and promoting young talents as well as exploring the twisted minds of established designers.
HAY’s design tries to bridge the statics of architecture and the dynamics of fashion. Through innovation and use of cutting edge technologies, HAY has recently come up with two award winning items - the recyclable felt chair “Nobody”, which is the first chair to be made entirely from textile and without a frame, and the inflatable stool “Plopp”, which is made from sheet metal.
