The Other One series helped establish HAY as a brand in 2003. Leif Jørgensen was HAY’s first designer, and with the Other One he created a furniture series consisting of modernist and innovative furniture typologies in bright complementary colours based on the concept of using furniture as spatial elements that did not necessarily dictate their specific use but instead invited free interpretation. The Other One series was the ideal front-runner for HAY as an ambitious and innovative furniture brand, and the unconventional series has remained an active part of HAY’s furniture collection.
Round One & Other One play with geometric constructions in a three-dimensional format that challenges conventional expectations and norms for the concept of an easy chair and a foot stool. Round One & Other One are functional furniture sculptures that welcome a free approach to function in an aesthetic that draws on a mix of Panton and sci-fi in a contemporary perspective.
