The iconic Rey dining chair was first launched in 1971 and demonstrates designer Bruno Rey's unique and simplistic vision. Based on the original Rey Chair, one of today's most recognisable pieces of Swiss industrial design, Hay has collaborated with Dietker to present the complete Rey collection.
Known for its unique screw-less production process, the Rey Chair for Hay boasts a slightly updated form with new dimensions and colours. The strength in Rey's classic design is clear and simple which cements itself in history with a timeless quality.

Bruno Rey was a Swiss born industrial engineer born in 1935 and is best known for his eponymous Rey Chair design. After years of travel at home and abroad as well as activities in architectural offices, he opened his own atelier in 1968. During this time, initial designs emerged for a new kind of wooden chair, which went into serial production in 1971 and the “Rey Chair” became the most successful Swiss chair of all time.
