Introducing Our New Partner - HAY:
a Danish manufacturer of furniture, lighting, and accessories

HAY emphasizes that everyone has the right to relish exceptional design, a sentiment that seamlessly aligns with Tengo's philosophy! The vision of this Danish furniture manufacturer closely mirrors our mission, and that's why we are delighted to announce HAY as our new partner!
HAY - Timeless Design, Scandinavian Quality
The founders, Rolf and Mette Hay, consistently maintained a distinct objective for their family business. Since its inception, their aim has been to produce items that not only excel in design but also embody a high level of practicality, a characteristic commonly associated with Scandinavian companies. The exceptional quality of HAY's furniture and other products is deeply rooted in their origin. Founded in Copenhagen in 2002, the company became part of the renowned American brand Herman Miller in 2019.
The Danish brand's success is still actively shaped by the husband-and-wife team at its helm. Rolf Hay, as the Creative Director for furniture, and his wife Mette, in a similar role overseeing accessories, collaboratively design products that not only delight aesthetically but also enrich the daily experiences of their users.
Every HAY Product Reflects the Brand's Value
In 2018, Herman Miller made a significant investment in the HAY brand by acquiring a 33% stake for a staggering $96 million. The following year, they further increased their investment, spending an additional $78 million for another 34%. The considerable worth of the HAY brand is evident not only in its financial valuation but also in the quality of its products. The stylish furniture designed for both residential and commercial spaces is not only extraordinary but also timeless, making it an excellent addition to any interior. Additionally, as a Danish manufacturer, HAY also serves as a supplier of outdoor furniture.
The most successful furniture, lighting, and interior decoration projects often come to life in the offices of top designers. Mette and Rolf Hay invite renowned designers to collaborate, including Louise Campbell, Stefan Diez, Naoto Fukasawa, Ana Kras, and George Sowden. Among the award-winning products designed by these collaborators, you can often find items bearing the HAY logo. A notable project emerged in 2022 when Louise Campbell designed "The Prince Chair" for a competition honoring Frederick, the Crown Prince of Denmark. HAY decided to commence its production on a larger scale. Subsequent HAY product designs received recognition at events like Milan Design Week and found their way into the prestigious MoMA Design Store, known for its designer accessories. The presence of HAY products in the MoMA Design Store is the finest testament to their uniqueness. We are delighted that globally acclaimed products can also find their way into projects crafted by the Tengo team.
What Inspires HAY Designers?
Is there a strict need to keep our work and personal lives separate? HAY designers argue otherwise. They specialize in creating highly practical furniture and home accessories that seamlessly blend the realms of work and personal life. Their products designed for commercial spaces often bring in a touch of warmth and familiarity. The synergy between these two spheres can result in truly remarkable outcomes. Architects and designers at Tengo share this belief, and we eagerly incorporate HAY products to add character to the interiors we design.
HAY's furniture, decor, storage solutions, and accessories embody a novel perspective on everyday items. Through this lens, seemingly mundane objects frequently evolve into miniature masterpieces. Each HAY product is influenced by the realms of fashion, art, and architecture. Concurrently, HAY designers keenly observe the surrounding world, incorporating elements of contemporary art into their projects.
High Quality, Beautiful Design, Accessible to All - HAY Furniture's Hallmarks
For over 20 years, HAY has been making award-winning, unique designs accessible to a wide audience. Despite the passage of time, Mette and Rolf Hay remain steadfast in their belief that everyone should have the chance to adorn their living spaces with beautiful, designer, and practical items!
