Distinctive Danish design essentials

Offering a fresh take on everyday objects, HAY furniture, lighting and accessories are created with curiosity and courage to provide good design to any home and anyone. This is HAY.

A different kind of design...

Established in 2002, HAY set out to be a new kind of design company, motivated by the belief that everyone has a right to good design. 

From the beginning, HAY’s co-founders and Creative Directors Mette and Rolf Hay have been committed to creating high-quality products available to a wide audience. Constantly innovating new pieces for modern homes, HAY furniture, lighting and accessories are stylish, accessibly priced and created in collaboration with the best designer’s from around the world. By keeping four essential values at the core of their company - passion, function, community and responsibility - HAY’s passion for design and a commitment to constant innovation can be seen in every one of their products.

Product Style

Sleek, flexible and stylish, HAY’s range of products are motivated and inspired by the realities of modern life where the traditional divides between personal and professional spaces are less defined. Every HAY piece is developed in close collaboration between HAY’s Creative Directors Mette and Rolf Hay, their in-house design team and product development teams in the Copenhagen office, as well as a loyal roster of contemporary designers from all around the world. From a paper bin to a mirror, a sofa to a shelf, each product begins with a clear starting point which allows for a more fluid development process and a better, long-lasting end product. Using cutting edge materials, methods, tools and technologies, HAY creates new and original products to elevate the everyday moments of our lives.

13Eighty chair

by Scholten & Baijings

Scholten & Beijings’ highly unique 13Eighty chair is aptly named for the number of tiny holes in its moulded polypropylene shell. Varying in size, these perforations create a characteristic, semi-transparent aesthetic while bringing a sense of movement to the chair and allowing rainwater to drain off when used outdoors. Comprising steel legs, a weather-resistant coating and a stackable design, the versatile 13Eighty chair is an innovative seat to be used indoors or outside.
