Die Q&A Session mit Micheal Leon, Global Creative Director von Sonos, und Mette und Rolf Hay, den Gründern von HAY, wurde in Kopenhagens Apollo Bar von Rune Skyum-Nielsen moderiert. Rune ist ein renommierter Schriftsteller und hat bereits Persönlichkeiten wie Daft Punk und den Kronprinzen von Dänemark interviewt. Einige Gedanken von Michael Leon und Rolf und Mette Hay zur HAY Sonos One Limited Collection findet ihr hier:

“I remember the first discussion we had about a potential HAY partnership – because it ended up being one of the best cross-team collabs I’ve ever done.HAY Sonos One - Im Interview mit Michael Leon & Mette und Rolf Hay by eat blog love

We started with really open-ended ideas – from a magazine to custom listening rooms. In the end, the right answer was perhaps the simplest, cleanest one – and that’s what we’re launching next week.” Michael Leon, Creative Director of Sonos“Working across industries we have learned a lot about our brand and how other companies work bringing in new energy and ideas especially to a design team.

With Sonos the design of the Sonos One is exactly how we would do a speaker so it was a perfect match for us design wise.” Rolf Hay

Originally when we first started talking with Sonos we discussed doing a pattern on the speakers. But HAY isn’t just one pattern or one color it is a lot more than that.

For the green we wanted something that looked like pots or plants in the window frames where you could also place the Sonos in green and it would blend in.

The light grey was for everyone, but it was important to find the right shade. We felt it was a shade that is for both a workspace or is more neutral in a home and can fit with a lot of different looks.

Pink was intended for the fashionable person. We feel that all things unexpected in pink create a special desire right now.

The red was the final color I selected for the collection it is such an important color for furniture. When we had to select a color we selected an iconic red that also fits well with our New Order shelf from Stefan Diez.” Mette Hay

Am Abend bei einer Hafenrundfahrt sollte ich noch einmal die Gelegenheit bekommen, Mette Hay in einem kleinen Einzelinterview ein paar generelle Fragen zum Thema Interior zu stellen. Ich muss gestehen, dass mich Mette sofort in ihren Bann gezogen hat. Und damit war ich nicht allein. Einige der Journalisten kamen ins Schwärmen. Sie ist so charismatisch, ruhig und mit ihren Aussagen auf den Punkt, dass man ihr einfach nur zuhören möchte. Aber lest selbst.

Me: “Earlier the day you said that your daughter would probably go with the red or the pink, your son would go with the sound and Rolf goes with the red or the green Which is one ist your favorite HAY Sonos One color?”

Mette: “I picked them all. I can`t just pick one. Each one is perfect for a different room or occasion.”

Me: “At HAY you are responsible for the accessories collections. What do accessories mean to you? Why are they your focus?”

Mette: “I could never design a chair. If it comes to HAY, HAY is something between architecture, art and fashion. Rolf is more the art and architecture part while I focus on fashion. Accessories are my fashion. Fashion is fast and I simply love that.”

Me: “That`s funny. I studied fashion design and actually it was the fast pace of fashion that made me turn my bag on fashion design.”

Mette: “I totally agree. That`s why I am focussing on accessories. You can easily switch and store them.”

Me: “What are your three must-haves in a home?”

Mette: “Well that depends. You definitely need a bed and a table. But when we are talking about accessories it`s candle holders, a blanket and cushions.”

Me: “HAY is all about colour. What does your home look like?”

Mette: “You know what?! We have been so busy with HAY the past 16 years that I didn`t really have the time to focus on our own home. We live in an old home from the 30ies with a few design classics like the Eames chairs. But I definitely feel like it`s time to spend some more time at home with my family.”

Ich für meinen Teil kann nur sagen, dass ich mich auf ein Wiedersehen freue und jederzeit gerne wieder nach Kopenhagen reise, wenn HAY und Sonos einladen.

Ich hoffe, euch hat das Interview gefallen. Und mich würde mal interessieren, welche Farbe des HAY Sonos One Speakers euer Favorit wäre? Ich war ja sofort hin und weg von dem Dunkelgrün, weil es so hervorragend in unser Esszimmer passt. Wobei ich auch das Hellgrau und das Rosa sehr mag.

Liebe Grüße,

Eure Sarah
