The HAY chair received an average of 3.7 out of five stars. The other three chairs follow with an average score of 3.5, 3.3 and 3.1. The four chairs have been on trial in the 'sneak preview' space in the University Library Singel. As end users of the chairs, the Library values students' opinions. Chairs were assessed for comfort, robustness and aesthetics. Students' reactions to the HAY chair ranged from "most beautiful chair with good back support" to "by far the favourite, looks the best and is the most comfortable".

 High participation

After two days, the campaign was stopped after more than 250 students completed the surveys, for which they received a goodie bag

The final finish of the HAY chair will be different from the one on trial in the Library. Matching the colour palette of the interior of the new University Library, the HAY chair will come in anthracite colour. 300 of this chair will be delivered for 28 study spaces.
