The black, yellow, gray or white stool/sculptures are either powder-coated or stainless steel.

The HAY-produced, moulded plywood Shanghay chair is composed of four small boards that fold around each other to form “the simplest chair imaginable.” Originally conceived for the Danish Pavillion for the Shanghai World Expo 2010, the chair was created to be a single segment of a long social bench that extends throughout both the inside and outside of the pavillion, in collaboration between BIG and Jeppe Hein. Multi-colored and easy to assemble, dissemble and reassemble, these pieces offer the versatility to create whatever hybrid design of the Shanghay you like.

A most inviting chair with an organic design that inspires comfort, neatness and style. It takes on a new technological challenge with highly sophisticated processing methods that consist in the welding of two shells: the transparent structure and the seat, in a full-colored and translucent version, are joined together making them indestructible and guarantee a truly surprising design effect.
