REY Chair Upholstered


Brand : Hay

Designer : Bruno Rey


HAY’s Rey chair is a fresh reinterpretation of the iconic chair designed by Bruno Rey in 1971. The classic collection, re-invented and re-released in collaboration with the original manufacturer, Swiss Dietiker, charms with its softly rounded lines and simple but detailed design. The timeless appeal of the Rey chair makes it an impressive addition to all spaces private and public alike.

In the Rey collection, the wooden frame and seat are combined in an innovative way with die-cast aluminium brackets. The unique mechanism also gives the chair its distinctive look: the seat looks almost as if it is floating, perfecting the robust design with an irresistibly attractive lightness.

Bruno Rey was born in 1933 Brugg, Switzerland. After an apprenticeship as a cabinetmaker, he studied at the Zurich School of Applied Arts, where he attended classes with the pioneering designer Willy Guhl. He opened his own studio in 1968, working on an innovative chair design that was mass produced in 1971 by Dietiker in Stein am Rhein. 3300 as the chair was originally called, later became known as Rey, the most successful Swiss chair of all time. HAY has collaborated with Dietiker to present the Rey Collection by Bruno Rey, comprising the Rey Chair, Rey Stool and Bar Stool, and Rey Table and Coffee Table.


HAY was founded in 2002. This marked the beginnings of the international ambition that HAY has pursued over the past decade: creating durable quality furniture at affordable prices to allow as many people as possible to enjoy excellent design. HAY looks back with pride at the age of Danish Modern, where quality, craftsmanship and humanistic design put Denmark on the global map, and they look with excitement to the future as they explore the current possibilities inherent in new technologies, new materials and new ways of living with furniture. At the heart of everything that HAY does is the notion that contemporary design should spring from a good idea, innovative technology and quality materials in combination with joyful, straightforward and uncomplicated aesthetics.
