HAY is a furniture design company from Denmark. Being Danish, they are part of that enlightened region of the globe that excels in pretty much everything. They seem to have an innate affinity for equality. Even when making furniture.

The company has its roots firmly planted in the Danish Modern tradition, which was a design movement in the mid-20th century. The movement took minimalist forms and adapted them for a new, aesthetically driven approach to mass-produced furniture. HAY are building on this history with the aim of making furniture and accessories — like these elegantly simple brass scissors — that embody the principals of good design while remaining affordable.
