COBE and HAY reveal the Halftime Chair.

With a moulded veneer seat and back riveted directly to the steel-tube frame, Halftime is a resilient, stackable chair with a clear expression that perfectly balances lightness, strength, and functionality. Crafted by the desire to create an extremely strong and durable chair that can last generations and is versatile enough for a wide range of contexts, Halftime is suitable for use in institutions, factories, cafés, and boardrooms

“HAY’s designs give the impression that it’s OK to feel comfortable while using their products. Since we mostly design public buildings, cultural facilities and institutional structures, we’re always looking for ways to informalise formal spaces. I think that’s where HAY’s design principles and furniture shine, said Dan Stubbergaard, Architect and Founder, COBE.

Originally developed in collaboration with COBE for adidas’ new Halftime building by COBE in Germany, the Halftime Chair was designed to possess the same robust and flexible properties as the building itself.
