Uchiwa Chair by Hay

Uchiwa Chair


Designed by Doshi Levien. Uchiwa is a capacious armchair, taking its soft and open shape from the traditional Japanese hand fan. Generous and inviting, New and familiar at the same time, the armchair comes in two upholstered versions: in soft down for a more domestic environment and in moulded foam for a more demanding contract context. The dramatic seat is available with legs in natural or stained oak.

Made to order in a wide choice of fabric types and colours (see a list under ‘Details’). Fabrics are priced in ‘Groups’. Simply select the appropriate price Group and then add a note of your fabric choice at checkout or email us.


Polypropylene shell with moulded polyurethane foam. Four-leg base in solid wood: grey stained oak, black stained oak, soaped oak, and matt lacquered oak.
