The Balcony collection from Hay is getting us thinking ahead to Spring. Designed by Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec - designers of the ever-popular Palissade collection - this is an elegant and functional collection of outdoor furniture that includes chairs, tables and benches.
Recognisable by its symmetrical holes as a core feature of the design, that soften its appearance as well as strengthen its structure. The collection is made from powder-coated steel with a weather-proof coating, ideal for all outdoor settings - gardens, patios, terraces and balconies.
“The new Balcony collection from the Bouroullecs is the next design classic in their portfolio for HAY following on from the huge success of the Palissade outdoor range. Balcony perfectly combines its simple yet beautiful design with function with its weather proof coating protecting it from the worst of British weather.”
The Balcony Table has a simple rectangular design and is softened by slender legs, with the multiple holes on the table’s surface strengthening the construction, as well as creating a distinct expression. This is a versatile table that can be used in all kinds of spaces - ideal for balconies, of course, but also will work well on terraces and in gardens too.
The Balcony Chair, part of the Balcony series by Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec for HAY, is an elegant and functional dining chair for outdoor use. The square design is softened by the rounded back, with the multiple holes in the seat and back strengthening the construction, as well as creating a distinct expression.

Their work is often talked about as poetry. Certainly they believe that their designs have to be adaptable for lots of different situations.
“I feel like the issue of design is more to decide what sort of culture surrounds us. Let’s say that technological issues, production issues, the tools that we play with… are the colours, but they’re not the real issues. The real issue is what kind of culture you bring to it. If we do a corkscrew, it has to work as a corkscrew, but the real thing is more the way you remember, the way your hand feels about it, then there is all this other part, which you can’t really control, which is the culture” (interview with Katie Treggiden).
