About A Lounge AAL 82. The About A Lounge collection is the result of a continued collaboration between HAY and designer Hee Welling. The goal was to create a connected family of lounge seating based around one simple, strong idea, without sacrificing the individual qualities offered by each model.

The series includes variants of high and low lounge chairs, an ottoman and a two-seater sofa. Cushon in extra
